The main objectives ofthis research study are (i) to evaluate biasness in the CMORPH rainfall estimates
(ii) to identify the window size that reduces bias in the CMOPRPH data (iii) to assess the performance ofbias corrected CMORPH rainfall estimates
Hydrodinamic modelling of the Amazon basin using TRMM rainfall estimates
from TRMM were extracted using the AcreBioClima geographic coordinates for the stations available in the Acre basin and both datasets were compared against each other through a contingency table (26,27), as can be found in Wilks (2011, p.
Erosion and water runoff are based on near real time rainfall estimates
coupled with historical soil and crop management records simply extended to estimate current conditions.
Satellite rainfall estimates
were provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Climate Prediction Center.
We think that radar rainfall estimates
are correct to within a factor of two.
The IFC rainfall estimates
have been used and evaluated in numerous atmospheric and hydrologic studies (e.
The project design primarily would focus on improving the flood forecasting capacity of WRD/GoB through development of appropriate models including strengthening existing model in Baghmati- Adhwara basin, operational use of ensemble rainfall forecasts and assimilation of satellite based near-real time rainfall estimates
, improving community outreach, and institutionalizing modeling capacity within the WRD.
These rivers have transboundary catchments, which can use satellite-based rainfall estimates
developed under phase-I of the flood project to improve forecasting ability.
are moderate, a band of showers can spread from the Etosha eastwards, while extending southward to the Orange.
