Abstract

The maximum daily rainfall data for 30 years (1967-1996) of Ootacamund, Nilgiris, recorded by India Meteorological Department were collected from the Directorate of Statistics, Chennai. Two programs were developed in BASIC for Lognormal and Gumbel distributions. The theoretical values so obtained were in close agreement with the observed data except at the highest rainfall for both the distributions.
