    This report reviews the current state of precipitation products, and includes assessments of sub-daily global satellite precipitation products, discussions of various climate applications of precipitation products, and ...
  • Haddad, Ziad S.; Turk, Francis J.; Utsumi, Nobuyuki; Kirstetter, Pierre-Emmanuel (World Climate Research Programme, 2021)
    Level-3 “sub-daily global merged satellite precipitation products” are typically reported on a fixed rectangular latitude-longitude grid at high spatial and temporal resolution (respectively 0.1º and ~0.5 hour). This section ...
  • Kirstetter, Pierre-Emmanuel (World Climate Research Programme, 2021)
    The critical importance of accurate water flux estimates for science and applications explains the large body of verification analyses focusing on precipitation estimates. Very few are implemented at the relevant scales ...
  • Kidd, Chris; Maggioni, Viviana (World Climate Research Programme, 2021)
    A major activity of the International Precipitation Working Group (IPWG) is the verification, validation and intercomparison of precipitation products to enable product developers and users to continually monitor and assess ...
  • Roca, Rémy; Kato, Seiji; L’Ecuyer, Tristan (World Climate Research Programme, 2021)
    Energy and water budget closure has recently been extensively used to assess the consistency of precipitation products with various other terms of the water and energy budget. Most efforts are focused on water closure and ...
  • Tapiador, Francisco J. (World Climate Research Programme, 2021)
    This chapter describes the role of satellite precipitation datasets in the analysis of climate variability and trends. Two major applications are explored, namely the validation of the variability in the statistical moments ...
  • Tapiador, Francisco; Levizzani, Vincenzo (World Climate Research Programme, 2021)
    This chapter reviews the use of satellite-derived precipitation datasets to validate climate models, with an emphasis in quality control and normalization. Two checklists are provided: one with the facts regarding the major ...
