Estimation problems in rainfall modeling



A special session entitled “Estimation Problems in Rainfall Modeling” was held during the 1985 AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco, Calif. The session was chaired by Witold F. Krajewski of the Hydrologic Research Laboratory of the National Weather Service (NWS), Silver Spring, Md. The purpose of the session was to bring together researchers interested in a wide range of rainfall-related estimation problems, such as parameter estimation, state estimation, multiple sensor rainfall analysis, and estimation problems in rainfall simulation. The topics of papers presented at the session included parameter estimation of point process models, errors in radar rainfall observations, and sampling aspects of space-state representation of rainfall.
