Abstract
Several methodologies have been proposed to combine radar and raingauge measurements with the aim of generating improved quantitative precipitation estimates (QPEs). These methods are based on interpolating point raingauge measurements (implicitly assumed to be "the truth") and benefiting from the structure of the rainfall field as depicted by the radar. The use of a non-parametric approach based on radar measurements has been recently demonstrated, showing the benefits in the interpolation of r...
