Validation of multisensors precipitation fields and numerical modeling in mediterranean test sites

Objective

The evaluation of climatic trends depends, among others, on an accurate estimate of intrinsically complex (both in time and space) precipitation fields. The scope of the present project is to create a European methodology for a more accurate monitoring of precipitation in Mediterranean areas. The research activities will be performed in areas of strategic interest, which have a dense operational network of gauges, historical-climatologically precipitation records, long-operating certified and internationally known radars, high impact of floods on populated areas. One pilot site (Cyprus) has also the (unique in Europe) advantage of being covered by TRMM satellite radar and will permit our research consortium to better prepare European participation in the future Global Precipitation Measuring mission.
