Abstract

Regional analysis of annual maximum precipitation data was conducted by using index-flood method based on L-moments. Annual maximum rainfall series for the durations of 1, 2, 6, and 24 hours were collected at 337 gauging stations in Korea. The identification of homogeneous regions was performed based on cluster analysis such as hierarchical and nonhierarchical techniques. As the results, various cluster analyses can be used to group appropriate sites into a region for regional analysis and to estimate more reliable quantiles.
