The article “Temporal and spatial evaluation of satellite-based rainfall estimates across the complex topographical and climatic gradients of Chile” was accepted yesterday (January 30th, 2017) for publication in the Hydrology and Earth System Sciences journal (HESS).

This work exhaustively evaluate -for the first time- the suitability of seven state-of-the-art satellite-based rainfall estimates (SRE) over the complex topography and diverse climatic gradients of Chile. Several indices of performance are used for different time scales and elevation zones. Our analysis revealed which products are in best with ground based observations of precipitation and which indices of performance suitable to capture mismatches in shape, magnitude, variability and intensity of precipitation.
