  • This data represents twenty-four modelled rainfall depth estimates by GridASCII files across the state of Kerala, India, for four durations (1, 6, 24 and 192 hours) and six return periods (2, 5, 10, 25, 50 and 100 years). The estimates were produced using a similar procedure to the Flood Estimation Handbook statistical method for flood frequency estimation: separately for each duration, the estimated median annual maximum (AMAX) rainfall was used as a standardizing “index” value and the estimated L-moments of the AMAX series were used to fit a generalized logistic distribution “growth curve”. The data are in units of mm at a spatial resolution of 0.12 degrees. Full details about this dataset can be found at

  • This is a set of six ASCII grids describing the peak flood event for six return periods (2-100 years) at each point of the river network in the state of Kerala, India. Estimates were derived in a similar way to the Flood Estimation Handbook* approach. The data is measured in cubic metres per second, and is given on an unprojected resolution of 15 arc-seconds per grid cell. This work was supported by the Natural Environment Research Council as part of the LAWIS programme delivering National Capability. * (Flood Estimation Handbook.
