rainfreq: Rainfall Frequency (Design Storm) Estimates from the US National Weather Service

Estimates of rainfall at desired frequency (e.g., 1% annual chance or 100-year return period) and desired duration (e.g., 24-hour duration) are often required in the design of dams and other hydraulic structures, catastrophe risk modeling, environmental planning and management. One major source of such estimates for the USA is the NOAA National Weather Service's (NWS) division of Hydrometeorological Design Studies Center (HDSC). Raw data from NWS-HDSC is available at 1-km resolution and comes as a huge number of GIS files. This package provides functionality to easily access and analyze the 1-km GIS files provided by NWS' PF Data Server for the entire USA. This package also comes with datasets on record point rainfall measurements provided by NWS-HDSC.
