Precipitation: measurement and space time variability
Precipitation: measurement and space time variability
Editor(s): R. Uijlenhoet, H. Leijnse, and P. Molnar
The purpose of the special issue is to provide an overview of recent advances and future directions concerning the measurement of precipitation from the local to the global scale and the characterization of its space-time variability.
