PRE-PROMISE (Validation of Precipitation REanalysis PROducts for rainfall-runoff Modelling In SlovEnia)

Precipitation reanalysis products (PRPs) are synthesized estimates of past weather activities. PRPs can be used for ungauged catchments or complementary to existing measurement networks. Existing PRPs differ regarding their spatial and temporal resolution as well as their data quality in comparison with ground stations. In this project numerous PRPs will be validated regarding their usage as input data for rainfall-runoff modelling in Slovenian catchments. While the team at TU Braunschweig will validate the PRPs regarding precipitation characteristics in space and time, the team at the University of Ljubljana will validate the PRPs in terms of the resulting runoff characteristics.
