Imperfect scaling of time and space-time rainfall



Imperfect scaling of time and space-time rainfall



Journal of Hydrology Amsterdam 322(1/4): 105-119



Scale invariance is the most fertile concept to be introduced in stochastic rainfall modelling in 15 years. In particular, a form of scale invariance called multifractality has been exploited to construct parsimonious representations of rainfall in time and space and address fundamental problems of hydrology such as rainfall extremes, downscaling, and forecasting. However, several authors have observed that rainfall is scale invariant only in approximation and within limited ranges.
