I need to convert a rainfall timeseries in 10 minute intervals from mm (depth) to mm/day.

(a) I understand the measurement logic for depth in mm; as represented in mm/10 min intervals and in mm per day interval. What does the unit 'mm/day' in 10 minute intervals represent. Rate? Accumulation? Why use mm/day in 10 min intervals when depth (mm) seems more straightforward?

(b) What is the formula or algebra to convert a rainfall timeseries between mm (depth) and mm/day (??) in 10 min intervals.

Thanks for any help.

I have a mental block from using mm/day as one depth value for the whole day and cannot understand the logic of the unit mm/day in 10 min time intervals. So cannot comprehend the the conversion logic.
