Problem: 2.0 Using the method of arithmetic mean, Thiessen polygons, and isohyetals compute the average annual precipitation (in inches) that fell on southern Michigan during 1989. The precipitation recorded for 17 stations in southern Michigan for 1989 is presented in table 1 and the approximate area represented by each Thiessen polygon and isohyetal interval is presented in tables 2 and 3, respectively. The different methods of calculating average depth of precipitation are discussed in your text as well as on the accompanying pages.
