Poster Session 3 Precipitation Processes and Observations for Atmospheric, Land Surface, and Hydrological Modeling

Monday, 8 January 2018: 4:15 PM-6:00 PM
Exhibit Hall 3 (ACC) (Austin, Texas)
Host: 32nd Conference on Hydrology
Emad Habib, Univ. of Louisiana, Civil Engineering, Lafayette, LA; Yu Zhang, Univ. of Texas at Austin, Dept of Civil Engineering, Arlington, TX and Paul A. Kucera, UCAR, COMET, Boulder, CO

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 models, and (5) impacts of improving precipitation estimates on hydrologic and land surface modeling. Please contact the session organizers, Emad Habib ( and Yu Zhang ( for additional information.
