An Adaptive Neural Network Scheme for Radar Rainfall Estimation from WSR-88 D Observations

  title={An Adaptive Neural Network Scheme for Radar Rainfall Estimation from WSR-88 D Observations},
  author={Hongping Liu and V. and C Chandrasekar},
Recent research has shown that neural network techniques can be used successfully for ground rainfall estimation from radar measurements. The neural network is a nonparametric method for representing the relationship between radar measurements and rainfall rate. The relationship is derived directly from a dataset consisting of radar measurements and rain gauge measurements. The effectiveness of the rainfall estimation by using neural networks can be influenced by many factors such as the… CONTINUE READING
