Given 6-hour rainfal data with units in meters(m), how can one convert the
6-hourly rainfall depth in
1-hourly rainfall intensity or rate in
Below is a sample data value to convert.
rainfall depth (m)= 0.0014061
This is what I have tried but not sure it is correct:
To convert the
6h value to the
hourly rate, I applied a multiplicative factor:
based on the reasoning that the equivalent to:
m (in 6 hours) to mm/s = 1000/21600 (i.e. 0.0462963)
How do I use the multiplicative factor (
0.046296296 kg/m2/s) to convert
6-hour rainfall depth to hourly?
Maybe I am thinking too much here.
