The magnitude of rainfall gradients clearly has implications in terms of the density of raingauge networks required to assess the volume of rainfall over an area to within certain orders of accuracy. The magnitude will differ greatly from one location to another however, dependent largely upon the nature of the atmospheric processes producing rain (Gibbs 1964) and the relief of the area. In spite of this, results from one area may give guidance as to the network required for other similar areas or as to the extent that existing networks are likely to be representative.
