NERN : Shuttleworth, Watts, JimenezGochis, Garatuza

  • 100 Event logging, tipping bucket raingages

  • 6 major W-E transects traversing SMO

  • Major improvement in topographic and temporal sampling of precipitation

  • Installed 2002-2003, in operation through spring of 2006

  • Not available in real-time

Issues related to nam precipitation analyses

Issues related to NAM Precipitation Analyses

  • What are the most appropriate metrics for comparing/ validating precipitation estimates from models and remotely sensed platforms with NERN and other station-based datasets?

    • Merged datasets

    • Area integrations (NAME verif. zones, gridded anal., watershed avgs., etc.)

    • Climatology vs. case studies

    • Linking precipitation character w/ forcing mechanisms

  • Exactly how does precipitation propagate off of the SMO?

    • Modeling and NERN evidence that precipitation may move away from SMO to west AND east

  • Extending analyses to encompass larger N. American region


Covariance between nams and us

Covariance between NAMS and US?:

Cont. US

  • SW – Cont. US correlations are v. weak and explain v. little of overall σ2

  • However, statistically significant evidence for weak anit-correl at lag 0 with transition to pos. correls at (US) lag 4
