Evaluation and bias correction of satellite rainfall data for drought monitoring in Indonesia

Vernimmen, R.R.E.; Hooijer, A.; Mamenun, Not Known; Aldrian, E.; Van Dijk, Albert


The accuracy of three satellite rainfall products (TMPA 3B42RT, CMORPH and PERSIANN) was investigated through comparison with grid cell average ground station rainfall data in Indonesia, with a focus on their ability to detect patterns of low rainfall that may lead to drought conditions. Each of the three products underestimated rainfall in dry season months. The CMORPH and PERSIANN data differed most from ground station data and were also very different from the TMPA 3B42RT data. It proved...[Show more]
