The validation of satellite precipitation estimates with ground observations plays a vital role in the search for sources of errors. Additionally, satellite estimates and their performance change with precipitation types, intensities, and geographical conditions. An international team of scientists led by Rajani Kumar Pradhan of the Czech University of Life Sciences recently published an article … Continue reading Integrated Multi-Satellite Retrievals for Global Precipitation Measurement
The Holocene | Markonis and Strnad  Self-organizing maps provide a powerful, non-linear technique of dimensionality reduction that can be used to identify clusters with similar attributes. Here, they were constructed from a 1000-year-long gridded palaeoclimatic dataset, namely the Old World Drought Atlas, to detect regions of homogeneous hydroclimatic variability across the European continent. A … Continue reading Representation of European hydroclimatic patterns with self-organizing maps
