Precipitation Forecasting and Estimation Model Based on the Information Supplied by the Meteorological Radar

  • Emil Traicu


Taking into account the characteristics and limitations of the radar network, the estimation of precipitation amounts accumulated over a given time interval (ranging from 1 to 12 hours) using radar data is accomplished in conditions in which radar data are acquired automatically at a “sampling rate” ranging from 10 to 20 minutes. In this case two types of errors occur, one due to the displacement of echoes and the other due to the evolution of echoes in time.
