NWC SAF: Convective rainfall products. Case studies
WMO Satellite Skills
José Lahuerta presents the NWCSAF products Convective Rainfall Rate (CRR) and CRR from cloud physical properties.
Length: 27 minutes.
The Convective Rainfall Rate (CRR) and the Convective Rainfall Rate from Cloud Physical Properties (CRR-Ph) products are satellite derived rainfall products based on the MSG/SEVIRI channels and cloud top microphysical properties respectively. Both rainfall products have been developed within the NWC SAF context to provide with instantaneous rain rates and hourly accumulations associated to convective episodes. Last version of the NWCSAF software package includes a new version of the CRR-Ph for nigh time. CRR and CRR-Ph behaviour will be texted in different convective events.
