Estimation of the fractional coverage of rainfall in climate models

, : Estimation of the fractional coverage of rainfall in climate models. Journal of Climate 6(4): 639-644

In climate models, the fraction of the grid cell area covered by rainfall, mu , is an important parameter in descriptions of land surface hydrology. A simple procedure is presented for this fraction, based on extensive observations of storm areas and rainfall volumes. The linear relationship between storm area and rainfall volume was utilized to compute rainfall volume, starting from radar observations of storm area.
