Seviri-based H SAF products for near real time precipitation estimates over full disk area: Validation and inter-comparison analysis
Marco Petracca provides an overview of SEVIRI-based precipitation products: H60, H61, H63 and H90.
Over the past few years, there has been a rising in intense precipitation events, resulting in severe effects on people and infrastructures. To meet the challenge of analysing weather events comprehensively and globally, the use of information from satellite is playing an ever-increasing role in the field of meteorology. In this context, H SAF provides data sets and products for operational hydrological applications: an overview of SEVIRI-based products will be given: H60, H61, H63 and H90. Their validation process and a direct inter-comparison between the same products with different spatial coverage will be shown to demonstrate their extended spatial validity.
