Precipitation Science: Observations, Retrievals, and Modeling

Description

Advances in space-based observing systems, computing, and data processing techniques have led to unprecedented advances in precipitation science. The increasingly lengthy time span of precipitation data records has prompted new, more detailed climatic analyses, and enhanced numerical models with more complex precipitation microphysics have been proved instrumental for improving the forecast of liquid and solid precipitation. Cross-discipline research and applications are revealing discoveries related to hydrological and land processes, climate, atmospheric composition, and ocean freshwater budget, also proving precipitation studies as a vital element in addressing societal issues.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts to understand precipitation physics and chemistry.

We are particularly interested in articles addressing precipitation estimation, advances in precipitation chemistry, satellite algorithms, CMIP5 climate analyses, solid precipitation science, drop-size distribution modeling, uncertainty analysis, isotopic measurements of precipitation, precipitation and hydrological modeling, and TRMM and GPM applications. Authors participating in the Energy and Environment Knowledge Week congress http://congresse2kw.uclm.es/ are invited to submit the extended versions of their papers to this special issue. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Raingauge estimates
  • Interpolation methods
  • Disdrometer estimates
  • Precipitation chemistry
  • Radar estimates of precipitation
  • Drop-size distribution modeling
  • Precipitation in regional climate models (RCMs)
  • Precipitation in global climate/circulations models (GCMs)
  • Aerosols and precipitation
  • Assimilation of precipitation
  • CMIP5 projections
  • Solid precipitation
  • Satellite estimates of precipitation
  • Precipitation microphysics
  • Numerical weather prediction (NWP) forecasts
  • Precipitation chemistry
  • Seasonal forecasting of precipitation
  • Hydropower
  • Isotopic measurements of precipitation
  • Gravimetric methods
  • CloudSat contribution to precipitation science
  • Field campaign reports
  • Integrated hydrological modeling

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal’s Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/amete/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/submit/journals/amete/pres/ according to the following timetable:
