Abstract

Daily precipitation data of 27 years from six research area were collected around Peninsular Malaysia where four in west regions and another two in east region. The purpose is to study one of the parameter that affected the rainfall behavior; frequency of rainy days effect amount of rainfall. Those data will undergo three stages of analysis which started by using Pearson correlation and the result were then strengthen by using Smooth Regression to determine the lineaity relationship between frequency of rainy days and amount of precipitation. Finally, daily precipitation data were used to look at the distribution of rainfall on research area using the daily precipitation concentration index (CI).
