Probable maximum precipitation (PMP) is a theoretical concept that is widely used by hydrologists to arrive at estimates for probable maximum flood (PMF) that find use in planning, design and risk assessment of high-hazard hydrological structures such as Cited by: 9.

Washington, D.C.: U.S. Dept. of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration: U.S. Dept. of the Army, Corps of Engineers, # Application of probable maximum. probable maximum rainfall (or precipi-tation) is considered in determining the size of the structure. The term probable maximum rainfall is meant to indicate that estimates of the amount of rainfall for a particular location have been adjusted upward to their climato-logic potential. There is no absolute criterion, however, for distinguishing.

The probable maximum precipitation (PMP) for stations in Malaysia using Hershfield formula is routinely estimated as mean plus 15 standard deviations processed from yearly maximum rainfall values. ‘Site Specific Probable Maximum Precipitation Estimates, Upper South Platte River Basin Colorado’, in: A.I. Johnson and R.A. Clark (Editors), Proceedings of the International Symposium on Hydrometeorology, American Water Resources Association, Bethesda, Md. pp. –Author: Bi-Huei Wang. Summary: The manual describes procedure for estimating the maximum probable precipitation and the maximum probable flood. This is the third revised version. The first and second editions of this manual were published in and , respectively. The current edition keeps a majority of the content from the second edition. Our PMP Approach. Our PMP approach follows methods similar to those used by the National Weather Service in the Hydrometeorological Reports on Probable Maximum Precipitation, and methods prescribed in the World Meteorological Organization’s Manual on Estimation of Probable Maximum leverage new and accepted improvements to PMP methodologies to address the complexities Location: East Harmony Road, Fort Collins,

data and the choice of a probability distribution function for maximum precipitable water influence the establishment of the PMP value, and thus, an upper bound for precipitation is impossible to obtain.

The revision process has involved the application of the more technically rigorous Generalised Southeast Australia Method (GSAM), which was previously developed for the southern Cited by: 2.   The probability that precipitation frequency estimates (for a given duration and) will be greater than the upper bound (or less than the lower bound) is 5%.
