Rainfall distribution during individual storm was monitored over a 100 km2 m of the Namib Desert Park during 1974. Five of these storms and cumulative totals of precipatation are examined. The explanations for storm occurence and for precipitation distribution within the study area are not obvious. The availability of additional data of this nature may assist with interpretation.
