Thursday, February 14, 2019. 10:30AM. Webinar: Operational Gauge-adjusted GHE-based Precipitation Estimation and its Application for Flash-flood Occurrence Prediction Worldwide. Konstantine P. Georgakakos, Hydrologic Research Center. Sponsored by NOAA. More information here.
The Global HydroEstimator (GHE) precipitation estimates constitute a critical source of low-latency operational data that feed the Flash Flood Guidance system (FFGS), which supports forecasters in 64 countries (currently) by providing to them products relevant to assessments for flash flood occurrence in an operational environment. The system integrates and quality controls data from a variety of remote and on-site sensors to support forecaster products. The talk will discuss the processing of precipitation data and provide information on validation of precipitation estimates from diverse regions.
