Abstract

This paper shows a method for estimating the accuracy of rainfall maps created from raingauge data for hydrological modeling purposes. Using a 14 year dataset of daily rainfall gathered by 33 automatic KNMI stations the seasonal changes in semi-variance were estimated. From this semi-climatological variance areal rainfall maps can be created by kriging. The resulting kriging variance can be used to find how reliable hydrological model output is based on the rainfall data.
