Abstract
A methodology based on the fractal properties of rainfall has been applied to obtain the intensity-duration-frequency, IDF, curves for 100 pluviometric Spanish stations over the Iberian Peninsula and the Balearic Islands from their daily precipitation series. The scaling behaviour of maximum rainfall intensities has been investigated and simple scaling has resulted suitable. This methodology has been verified in three emblematic observatories with available sub-daily registers and current known ...
