Transformation of precipitation time series for climate change impact studies
January 1995
by A.M.G. Klein Tank (KNMI), T.A. Buishand (KNMI),

A new technique is developed to obtain suitable time series of daily precipitation for climate change impact studies by means of a transformation of an observed record. The transformation makes use of regression relations between precipitation and other meteorological elements. The methods allows for a modification of the sequence of wet and dry days by assigning a probability of rain to each day.
