Has anyone made a table or formula to derive base annual rainfall from a world's hydrographic percentage, atmospheric density, and average temperature?

Rotation rate is also going to be significant.

For a rough hack, I'd look for a formula or table for evapotranspiration as a function of temperature, assume that rate applies over the [un-frozen] water surface, guess that what goes up must come down, and then normalise to a figure for Earth.
