Analysis of H SAF precipitation products for the Mediterraneancyclone Apollo

Published: 7 February 2022

This work analyses the performances of the H SAF precipitation products during the Mediterranean cyclone Apollo. The cyclone Apollo occurred between October 25th and October 29th, 2021 with its maximum on October 28th and 29th when it approached the coasts of Sicily causing floods and damages to civil structures. The present work aims to describe the cyclone evolution by exploiting the satellite-based Level 2 and Level 3 H SAF precipitation products. The analysis focuses on the reconstruction of the precipitation pattern and of the quantitative amount thanks a direct comparison with ground-based measurements.
