Short summary
In this study we develop a method to estimate the spatially averaged rainfall intensity together with associated level of uncertainty using geostatistical upscaling. Rainfall data collected from a cluster of eight paired rain gauges in a small urban catchment are used in this study. Results show that the prediction uncertainty comes mainly from two sources: spatial variability of rainfall and measurement error. Results from this study can be used for uncertainty analyses of hydrologic modelling.
