  1. Return period estimates of the area-rain intensity values for small catchments. Where results display '-1' the catchment is greater than 30 square kilometres and no answer is available. Numbers need to be multiplied by the Rational Method 'C' factor to give the required flood magnitude. NZREACH NZ digital network 1 ID no.
