The purpose of this study is twofold; first to determine generalized estimates of probable maximum precipitation for 5,000 to 25,000 sq. km. drainages for durations up to three days covering the Lower Mekong River Basin and second, to prepare rainfall estimates that will produce the probable maximum flood at three potential dam sites on the main stem of the Mekong River, specifically at Luang Prabang and Pakse, both in Laos and at Kratie (Sambor) in Cambodia. Total drainage areas above these sites are 262,000 sq. kilometers, 539,000 sq. kilometers, and 646,000 sq. kilometers, respectively.
