H132:
Utilizing Precipitation Datasets and Quantifying Associated Uncertainties in Hydrometeorological and Climate Impact Applications





Session ID#: 23092

Session Description:
This session seeks contributions from the research, operational, and user communities that utilize precipitation datasets in applications that address scientific and societal needs from flood forecasts to climate impact studies. Uncertainties in precipitation data have a significant impact on the usefulness of these applications.  This session also seeks contributions that present advances in error characterization and uncertainty quantification in diverse precipitation datasets and to enhance our understanding on how the uncertainties propagate to hydrological processes and thus affecting the modeling and data-assimilation in these applications. The session can host broad topics including evaluation efforts.  Presentations that present precipitation applications and various error components in precipitation datasets are welcome.
