Causality across rainfall time scales revealed by continuous wavelet transforms

  title={Causality across rainfall time scales revealed by continuous wavelet transforms},
  author={Annalisa Molini and Gabriel Katul and Amilcare Porporato},
[1] Rainfall variability occurs over a wide range of time scales owing to processes initiated by cloud microphysics and sustained by atmospheric circulation. A central topic in rainfall research is to determine whether rainfall variability at a given scale is caused by dynamics acting at some other scales. Random multiplicative cascades (RMCs) are standard approaches for describing rainfall variability across such a wide range of time scales. Their popularity stems from their ability to… CONTINUE READING
