  • Concern about anthropogenic climate change has heightened the need for accurate information about spatial and temporal variations in precipitation at the Earth’s surface. Large-scale precipitation estimates can be derived from either surface gauge measurements or by satellite remote sensing, both of which have shortcomings. Gauge measurements provide information about trends and variability of monthly precipitation throughout the entire twentieth century, but because of the lack of data from… CONTINUE READING
