Summer Precipitation Frequency , Intensity , and Diurnal Cycle over China : A Comparison of Satellite Data with Rain Gauge Observations

  title={Summer Precipitation Frequency , Intensity , and Diurnal Cycle over China : A Comparison of Satellite Data with Rain Gauge Observations},
  author={Tianjun Zhou},
Hourly or 3-hourly precipitation data from Precipitation Estimation from Remotely Sensed Information using Artificial Neural Networks (PERSIANN) and Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) 3B42 satellite products and rain gauge records are used to characterize East Asian summer monsoon rainfall, including spatial patterns in June–August (JJA) mean precipitation amount, frequency, and intensity, as well as the diurnal and semidiurnal cycles. The results show that the satellite products are… CONTINUE READING
