Aldridge, R. The resultant direction and inclination of rainfall at Taita Experimental Station, New Zealand
Resultant direction and inclination of rainfall at Taita Experimental Station, Lower Hutt, New Zealand, have been computed from vectopluviometer data for the period March 1959 to December 1971. The patterns of distribution of resultant direction and inclination are described in relation to selected daily-rainfall size classes. The relationship between resultant direction and inclination of daily rainfall are related to daily and monthly windrun data. Monthly, seasonal and annual variations of resultant direction and inclinations are described.
The implications of the distribution of the horizontal component of the rainfall from the four cardinal points of the compass are discussed.
