What does XRain provide?

Precipitation (rainfall) information has traditionally been derived from rain gauge records. Rain gauges directly measure the rainfall at a certain point, and if installed appropriately can provide excellent data. However, estimating rainfall between rain gauges can be a difficult process, especially if…

Source data

XRain is based on a dataset of historical precipitation measured using satellites. This dataset, known as GPM_3IMERGHH_06, is supplied by the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission, a joint project between NASA and JAXA. GPM_3IMERGHH_06 (Huffman et al., 2019) is the…

Seasonal precipitation Monthly Totals This is the total amount (depth) of precipitation received over the course of each month, plotted as a box plot. Outliers Users can choose whether to include statistical “outliers” when plotting the maximum and minimum whiskers. Ignoring…

Extreme precipitation Extreme precipitation statistics (also known as design rainfall, precipitation frequency, intensity-duration-frequency, depth-duration-frequency or high intensity precipitation) are estimates of the depth or intensity that will occur at a certain frequency, and are used for modeling the flooding that might…
