Aldridge, R. The resultant direction and inclination of rainfall at Arahura, Wairarapa, New Zealand

Resultant directions and inclinations of rainfall have been computed from vectopluviometer data taken at Arahura near Gladstone in the Wairarapa, for the period June 1967 to July 1971. The distribution of resultant direction and inclination of the daily rainfall are discussed along with the relationship between resultant direction and inclination. Monthly and seasonal variation of the resultant direction and inclination of the rainfall are presented.
This study illustrates the marked predominance of southerly rainfall in this part of the Wairarapa and the rarity of northerly or westerly rainfall. Resultant inclinations of the rainfall show that the southerly rainfall is more steeply inclined from the vertical than rainfall from other directions.
