Evaluating NEXRAD Multisensor Precipitation Estimates for Operational Hydrologic Forecasting

  title={Evaluating NEXRAD Multisensor Precipitation Estimates for Operational Hydrologic Forecasting},
  author={Christina B. Young and Allen Bradley and Witold F. Krajewski and Anton Kruger}
Next-Generation Weather Radar (NEXRAD) multisensor precipitation estimates will be used for a host of applications that include operational streamflow forecasting at the National Weather Service River Forecast Centers (RFCs) and nonoperational purposes such as studies of weather, climate, and hydrology. Given these expanding applications, it is important to understand the quality and error characteristics of NEXRAD multisensor products. In this paper, the issues involved in evaluating these… CONTINUE READING
