Description :
This study examines the usefulness of the Cantor dust as a method to characterize precipitation records from climate stations in the arid/semiarid zone of the Southwestern United States. Because many geomorphic processes dependent on precipitation, are a function of frequency, magnitude and antecedent conditions, the fractal characteristics of the precipitation sequence play an important role in understanding the limites of forward modeling.
