An Evaluation of NEXRAD Precipitation Estimates in Complex Terrain

  title={An Evaluation of NEXRAD Precipitation Estimates in Complex Terrain},
  author={Christina B Young and Brian R. Nelson and Allen Bradley},
NEXRAD precipitation estimates are used for hydrological, meteorological, and climatological studies at a wide range of spatial and temporal scales. The utility of radar-based precipitation estimates in such applications hinges on an understanding of the sources and magnitude of estimation error. This study examines precipitation estimation in the complex mountainous terrain of the northern Appalachian Mountains. Hourly digital precipitation (HDP) products for two WSR-88D radars in New York… CONTINUE READING
