Abstract
The rainfall spatial organization in the metropolitan area of Barcelona (Spain) has been studied from records of an urban rain gauge network in the period 1994–2009. Using statistical and regional analysis techniques, correlation between data recorded by the different rain gauges has been calculated, and the effective number of independent stations (neq) equivalent to the used network has been determined. It has been found out that for durations longer than 20 min, the areal rainfall return pe...
