The FORGEX (Focused Rainfall Growth Extension) method was developed to estimate rainfall quantiles in the United Kingdom. This method does not need any regional grouping and can estimate rainfall quantiles with relatively long return period. The spatial dependence formula (ln Ne) was derived to consider the distance from growth curve of proper population to the distributed network maximum (netmax) data using the UK rainfall data. For this reason, there is an inaccurate problem in rainfall quantiles when this formula is applied in Korea. In this study, the new formula was derived in order to improve such shortcomings using rainfall data of 64 sites from the Korea Meteorological Administration (KMA). A 42-year period (1973~2014) was taken as the reference period from rainfall data, then the formula was derived using three parameters such as rainfall duration, number of site, area of network. Then the new formula was applied to the FORGEX method for regional rainfall frequency analysis. In addition, rainfall quantiles were compared with those from the UK formula. As a result, the new formula shows more accurate results than the UK formula, in which the FORGEX method by the UK formula underestimates rainfall quantiles. Finally, the new improved formula may estimate accurate rainfall quantiles for long return period.
