The relationship between altitude and hail frequency in the Transvaal

Olivier J. (1988)

Correlations of hail incidence with major topographical features have been documented for various parts of the world. The relationship, however, not necessarily a linear one. In this paper, the nature of the link between hail day frequency and altitude is reported for the Transvaal. A mathematical model which describes this relationship is proposed. The mapping of residuals shows that, while the model provides a good fit for most of the Transvaal, factors other than altitude play a significant role in hail day frequency on the eastern highveld and adjacent lowveld. -from Author
