Abstract

Precipitation data for 8 stations in the lowland and foothill regions of Lesotho were analysed to characterise the geomorphological significance of precipitation from a soil erosion perspective. Lacking long series of recording rain gauge data, short series of intensity recordings were used to establish a relationship between daily amounts and maximum storm intensity. The likelihood of high intensities is highest during December-February with considerably longer recurrence intervals for the onset and end of the wet season. Recurrence intervals are longer for sites located in the foothill and mountain regions of the country
