Event Week on Precipitation 2020


From 14 to 18 December 2020 EuMeTrain in collaboration with H SAF organized an event week on precipitation. Precipitation is the most important variable in the Earth’s hydrological budget, being the major component of the water cycle. For this reason, the better understanding of the spatial and temporal distribution of precipitation, and its quantification is fundamental for any hydrological and climatological application. H SAF products and applications fit with the objectives of services, agencies, authorities and other initiatives which need information on water at the ground in order to monitor hazards and natural disasters such as flash floods, landslides and drought conditions, as well as to improve water management.

The event week was held using the Webex software and it was open to everyone who wanted to participate. The participants only had to register themselves, that way they received the links to access the sessions.
