Abstract

The present study was conducted during 2021 at middle Gujarat. The objectives of the study remained inclined towards the challenging task, where limited observed rainfall records (daily and sub-daily both) were utilized to project corresponding regional design hyetographs for providing the design hyetographs at similar ungauged sites in the region. This script explores suitability, appropriateness and end efficacies of blended (ground based as well as remotely sensed) precipitation data attained for a data deprived region, which was ultimately utilized to derive location specific rainfall curves adopting satellite based observed rainfall records. A set of representative type curves on rainfall (daily & sub-daily) for study region were conceived, which could be potentially utilized for better rainfall-runoff modelling even under purely ungauged scenarios. Voluminous precipitation data retrieved via GPM (IMREG) satellite precipitation products was endeavoured and used to create values envelope of design curves for use in ungauged situations. 21 years of daily & sub-daily rainfall records (2000–2020) were thoroughly examined and used to retrieve valid understanding towards annual, monthly, daily and even hourly based variability of rainfall across six different stations as adopted in the study. The net magnitude of dispersals in all the derived sets of mass curves/Hyetographs were worked out and suitably compared across 6 specific locations as well as their categorization in terms of storm depths, storm durations and peak rain intensities which could be of high practical importance for water resource planners other relevant research and development.
