NOAA 14 Rainfall data and distribution
The Engineering Field Handbook supplement concerns use of rainfall data developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Atlas 14 (NOAA 14) and rainfall distributions based on the NOAA 14 data. These rainfall data and rainfall distributions will replace rainfall data from Weather Bureau Technical Paper 40 (TP-40) and the standard NRCS rainfall distributions Type II and Type III. This Supplement contains maps, data, and technical procedures for the state of Delaware.
