Multi-Radar Multi-Sensor Express Quantitative Precipitation Estimation


Abstract: The use of weather sensing radar measurements along with corresponding gauge data seek to provide reliable estimates of rainfall rate and accumulation. This information is essential for forecasters to issue flood warnings and for improved situational awareness. Radar rainfall estimators have a number of advantages over gauges including the ability to observe precipitation over wider areas within shorter timeframes and providing advanced warning of impending precipitation events. The radar reflectivity-rainfall (Z-R) relations are traditionally used for quantitative precipitation estimation (QPE).
