State of the Science of Precipitation

AMS: State of the Science of Precipitation The American Meteorological Society created special thematic article collection State of the Science of Precipitation, available on-line. Abstracts for all AMS articles are available to everyone, as is the full text of Bulletin articles. Access to full-text HTML and PDF articles in the technical journals is limited to paid subscribers. It was my pleasure to find on that page a few articles by our colleagues and friends:

  • R. Uijlenhoet, J.-M. Cohard, M. Gosset, Path-average Rainfall Estimation From Optical Extinction Measurements Using a Large-aperture Scintillometer. Journal of Hydrometeorology, early online release. - link
  • Hidde Leijnse, Remko Uijlenhoet, Alexis Berne, 2010. Errors and Uncertainties in Microwave Link Rainfall Estimation Explored Using Drop Size Measurements and High-Resolution Radar Data. Journal of Hydrometeorology, Vol. 11, Iss. 6, 1330–1344.- link
