Verification of modeled rainfall with precipitation observed by a rain gauge network has been performed in a case study over the Cyprus Island. Cyprus has a relatively dense rain gauge network. The applied verification method is the Contiguous Rain Area (CRA) analysis. Some drawbacks of the CRA method are pointed out when it is applied to such a case study.(More)
— The Mediterranean area is characterized by relevant hydrological, meteorological and marine processes developing at horizontal space-scales of the order of 1–100 km. In the recent past, several international programs have been addressed (ALPEX, POEM, MAP, etc.) to " resolving " the dynamics of such motions. Other projects (INTERREG-Flooding, MEDEX, etc.)(More)
The speed of Atlantic surface depressions, occurred during the autumn and winter seasons and that lead to intense precipitation over Italy from 1951 to 2000, was investigated. Italy was divided into 5 regions as documented in previous climatological studies (based on Principal Component Analysis). Intense precipitation events were selected on the basis of(More)
We study the phase behavior of the Zwanzig model of suspensions of hard rods, allowing for polydispersity in the lengths of the rods. In spite of the simplified nature of the model ͑rods are restricted to lie along one of three orthogonal axes͒, the results agree qualitatively with experimental observations: the coexistence region broadens significantly as(More)
This contribution deals with the description of the Italian Radio Occultation experiment on board the Indian OCEANSAT-2 Mission. Details of the Italian Radio Occultation Ground Segment and results obtained within the validation activity will be discussed. Atmospheric profiles (in terms of refractivity, temperature, and electron density) obtained processing(More)
