Session 1 Precipitation Processes and Observations for Atmospheric, Land Surface, and Hydrological Modeling Part I

Monday, 7 January 2013: 1:30 PM-2:30 PM
Ballroom E (Austin Convention Center)
Host: 27th Conference on Hydrology
Pingping Xie, NOAA, Camp Springs, MD and Thomas Adams, NOAA/NWS, Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, OH

The session will focus on precipitation measurement/estimation with a eye on historical, high resolution, gridded, hourly, daily and subdaily precipitation (re-)analysis. Recently, significant research interest has focused on multi-sensor (gauge-radar-satellite-model) fusion procedures for hi-resolution regional precipitation We are hoping to continue discussions on: (1) the current status of precipitation data set development; (2) the current and future requirements for the data sets; (3) how to produce precipitation products that serve the research community while benefiting operations and service activities; (4) demonstrate successful uses of these products; and (5) describe multi-sensor data fusion processes.
