The EPSAT-SG surface rainrate product is available Print E-mail

This product is a 30-minutes / 0.1° estimated satellite rainfall accumulation.
It has been obtained merging rainfall probability and potential rainfall intensity data. This method allows creating rainfall estimations with the same space and time resolution as MSG (3 kilometres and 15 minutes).

 The rainfall probability data is obtained thanks to a feed forward neural network using:

- Seven of the twelve channels of Meteosat Second Generation (MSG)
- Presence of rain from the precipitation radar of the Tropical Rainfall Measurement Mission (TRMM)
- And elevation data from Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM).

The potential rainfall intensities have been obtained merging these probability data with rainfall accumulation derived from the Global Precipitation Climatology Project 1 degree daily (GPCP-1dd).
