Relationship between vertical currents and intensity of precipitation

1950 Mausam  
The formula developed by Fulks for estimating the rate of precipitation from the physical state of the upper layer and velocity of ascending layers is discussed with examples. Keeping these in view thunderstorms that occurred at Poona during 1939-45 were examined. Generally it was found that a shower with an intensity of 4 in/hr, or grater, lasts for 2 to 3 mins and that with an intensity between 2 to 4 in/hr lasts for about 3 minutes only.
