M. D. Dennett, J. A. Rodgers, Dyno (J. D. H. ) Keatinge. (14/5/2003). Simulation of a rainfall record for the site of a new agricultural development: an example from Northern Syria. Agricultural Meteorology, 29 (4), pp. 247-258.
Daily rainfall records for two sites in Northern Syria are compared by fitting probability and frequency models to the observations. A model is interpolated for the main experimental site of the International Centre for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) at Tel Hadya, a site which is intermediate between the weather stations and for which long term measurements were not available. Various rainfall statistics relating to crop improvement programmes are calculated from the model and the rainfall patterns of the last three years are placed in a long term perspective.
