Resumo

The study of the rainfall characteristics is of fundamental importance since the frequency of floods has increased in several parts of Brazil due to anthropic impacts of climatic changes. Thus, this study aimed to determine the parameters of the intense rainfall equation (K, a, b, c) for 52 municipalities in the State of Alagoas using data from 164 rain gauges ta available from the National Water Agency (ANA). The data series were subjected to consistency analysis and further desegregation of maximum daily rainfall to durations of the 5; 10; 15; 20; 25; 30; 60; 360; 480; 600; 720 and 1,440 minutes and return period of 5; 10; 25; 50 and 100 years according to different probabilistic models. The adjustment of the parameters was carried out by means of non-linear regression, with R² greater than 0.949 for all the stations, considering for this purpose one station per municipality, totaling 51 municipalities of study. It was obtained that the maximum rainfall intensity predicted increases with the increase in the return period and decreases with the increase of the duration of the rain. The greater intensities were detected in the mesoregion of Eastern Alagoano and the lowest intensities in the mesoregion of Sertão Alagoano.
