This is a map of mean annual precipitation in the Humboldt Bay Basin, based on a computer model by the Spatial Climate Analysis Service at Oregon State University, displayed along with sub-basins and coastline. The model is based on 1961-1990 rainfall data. Higher rainfall occurs at higher inland elevations than at coastal lower elevations.
