Özet

The generalized depth duration frequency (DDF) relationships that define rainfall depth as the function of rainfall duration (d) and frequency or recurrence interval (T) are extensively used for design purposes in hydrological applications. To generalize the DDF relationships at a site, the parameters of the selected parent distribution must provide several divergence criteria (i.e., quantile functions of different durations must not intersect each other).
