Short summary
The paper presents a methodology for using global precipitation products from satellite remote sensing to error-correct and downscale global atmospheric reanalysis precipitation data sets. It is shown that streamflow simulations from the satellite-adjusted precipitation reanalysis give similar statistics to the ones derived by high-resolution ground-based radar rainfall data sets. This approach can be applied globally to derive improved flood frequency maps over data-poor areas.
