Workshop Objectives :
This informal workshop is dedicated to Satellite Rainfall Products Validation and applications , with a focus on Tropical regions.
The discussions will focus on two key questions of special relevance for satellite rainfall users and developpers in the Tropics :
How well can we evaluate Satellite Rainfall products and the associated errors in regions with scarce rain gauges networks ?
How do rainfall uncertainties propagate in Hydrological applications and the water budget ?
Papers on methodological and theoretical issues are welcome, as well as results on validation, hydrological applications and sensitvity tests, in various tropical regions.
Check the more detailed topics below :
Direct Validation – assessment of GV uncertainties
Hydrological Validation – Rainfall error propagation
Preliminary results from Megha-Tropiques Validation activities
Note also that a mini course is planned on the 27th evening : applied course on how to use the free R package, to process your Rain Gauges data as a ground reference (spatial averaging and sampling uncertainty evaluation using block-kriging techniques / basic comparisons an statistical scores etc…)
Abstract Submission / Registration :
Abstract submission is opened until July 15th 2013
To submit an abstract or register to the conference you will first need to create an account on this site using the menu on the left. If you already have an account with sciencesconf or HAL you may use it.
Notification on oral/poster acceptance will be given in July.
Registration is free of charge.
Financial support :
Partial financial support is available for a very limited number of participants : please enquire at firstname.lastname@example.org to apply.
