These maps show the distribution of heavy rainfall in Brazil based on a 5-year return period. These results were obtained from IDF (intensity-duration-frequency of heavy rain) relationships of gauge stations in the Brazilian territory. The map in the top left shows heavy rainfall with 5-minute duration. The one to the right shows 30-minute duration. The one at the bottom left shows 60-minute duration and the last one to the right 120-minute duration. According to these results, the highest values are concentrated in the Amazon region and in the southern part of the country and the lowest in the semi-arid region in the northeast. These estimates are important for the design of micro-drainage structures preventing them from being damaged by heavy rainfall events.
