Short summary
High-resolution precipitation data are often a “must” as input for hydrological and hydraulic models (i.e. urban drainage modelling). However, station or climate projection data usually do not provide the required (e.g. sub-hourly)  resolution. In the work, we present two new statistical models of different types to disaggregate precipitation from a daily to a 10  min scale. Both models were validated using radar data and then applied to climate models for 10 stations in Germany and South Korea.
