Session 13 Precipitation Processes and Observations for Atmospheric, Land Surface, and Hydrological Modeling III

Thursday, 10 January 2019: 1:30 PM-3:00 PM
North 127ABC (Phoenix Convention Center - West and North Buildings)
Host: 33rd Conference on Hydrology
Eleonora Demaria, USDA–ARS, Southwest Watershed Research Center, Tucson, AZ; Francina Dominguez, Univ. of Illinois at Urbana−Champaign, Atmospheric Sciences, Urbana, IL and Joshua K. Roundy, Univ. of Kansas, Department of Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering, Lawrence, KS

The precipitation session focuses on precipitation observation, modeling, estimation, and applications of in-situ and remotely sensed precipitation products. Topics include, but are not limited to (1) precipitation processes and modeling; (2) advances in remote sensing of precipitation from satellite and radar platforms; (3) recent development pertaining to fusion and downscaling of precipitation products; (4) assimilation of precipitation and precipitation-related variables in NWP model; (5) impacts of improving precipitation estimates on hydrologic and land surface modeling; (6) uncertainty of sub-daily precipitation observations on hydrologic design and modeling.
