Abstract

The spatial rainfall variability in design storms for Johore Bahru was studied using station data correlation and event occurrences. The generalized extreme value (GEV) distribution was used in the analysis and probability weighted moment (PWM) was also used for defining statistical parameter and quantile estimates. The results show that the region of Johore Bahru can be divided into two sub-regions; sub-region I for east coastal area and sub-region II for west coastal area. The magnitude of rainfall depth in west coastal region was about 60% of those of east coastal region. The quantile estimates for west coastal area gave an over values compared to those of east coastal area.
