IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

RAINFALL BEHAVIOR REGIONALIZATION TO PROVIDE DESIGN VALUES FOR INFRAESTRUCTURE: CASE OF STUDY IN A BINATIONAL BASIN OF SOUTH AMERICA
Author : JULIO MONTENEGRO GAMBINI ,
This research aims to make a Hydrological regionalization in the binational basin of Catamayo-Chira river, one of the most affected basins in South America due to extreme events. We explored the most of existing information, seeking to estimate hydrological variables in lacking data sites where existing information is insufficient in quantity or quality; on the other hand, it is very important we have design values such as rainfall to propose hydraulic infraestructure. This technique allows better exploring in samples and, consequently, improving the estimates of variables checking the consistency of hydrological series and identifying the lack of observation using daily rainfall data provided by governmental institutions of Per? and Ecuador. With the use of statistical methods, hydrological regions are analogous to areal classes. In this present study, we applied to Catamayo-Chira river in order to analyses the patterns of variation and to delimit regions of uniform behavior and making comparisons with the maximum values of rainfall and runoff data using different methods. Regional homogeneity characteristics were evaluated following the Multidimensional strokes method by Andrews (1972) and index-flood method, described by Dalrymple (1960). We perform theoretical probability distributions obtaining the most representative maximum daily rainfall values and to assess several return periods, additionally within each region, the relationship between rainfall and El Ni?o phenomenon will be examined. The comparison of results between the maximum rainfall values obtained by frequency analysis in each of the rain gauges and by regionalization shows that the methodology is reliable and useful with very good correlation between the Real and the Regionalized values, in order to obtain design values for hydraulic infrastructure. Based on hydrometeorological analysis have been developed isohyets maps and 3D surfaces to assess the spatial distribution of rainfall regions.
