A review on probable maximum precipitation (PMP) estimation in Malaysia
by Hock Hwee Heng, Ching Poon Hii
International Journal of Hydrology Science and Technology (IJHST), Vol. 1, No. 1/2, 2011

Abstract: The objective of this review is to compare the PMP convention of SMHB/B&P vis-a-vis other consultants' studies that have been carried out in Malaysia. The review primarily addresses the issues on the PMP derivation in Peninsular Malaysia and with minimum coverage of PMP issues in the Borneo states of Sarawak and Sabah. The short- and long-duration PMP values were applied in Peninsular Malaysia and Borneo states. The PMPs adopted by SMHB/B&P are further classified into two series, i.e., coastal and inland. Fourteen reports and studies related to the derivation of PMP in Peninsular Malaysia by other consultants were discussed in detailed. Both PMP estimates adopted by SMHB/B&P and the studies by other consultants are presented systematically in tandem in this review.
