Abstract

This study focuses on describing spatial analysis for the important statistics (mean and probability rain) and the storm behavior by using Neyman-Scott Rectangular Pulse (NSRP) parameters in Peninsular Malaysia, based on huorly rainfall data from 50 selected rainfall stations which include four subregions, namely northwest, west, southwest, and east for the periods of 1970 to 2008. The results of this study proved that NSRP model is able to imitate the pattern of actual rainfall in Peninsular Malaysia by comparing the parameters as well as the spatial distribution of the means and probabilities of 1 and 24-hour rain. Thus, results from the NSRP model fitting for each station are valid to be used in further analysis that is to evaluate the behavior of storm rainfall. Moreover, that almost all areas on northwest, west and east regions experienced mean of rain 24 hours < 45 mm, and that the largest was observed in southwest on November, December, and January with value > 0.51.
