12th International Precipitation Conference (IPC12)


Precipitation remains one of the most challenging processes to model and predict at the local, regional and global scales with significant implications for our ability to quantify water cycle dynamics, inform decision making, and predict hydro-geomorphic hazards in response to extremes. A key to these efforts is adequate observations across space and time scales to constrain and improve models, inform data assimilation efforts, and detect and attribute changes in large-scale dynamics and regional extremes. This special collection of papers is based on advances presented at the 12th International Precipitation Conference (IPC12) which brought together the international community to integrate research, discuss challenges and opportunities, and craft future directions. Innovative contributions in this special collection include advances on three main themes: (1) estimation of precipitation from multiple sensors; (2) water cycle dynamics and predictive modeling at local to global scales; and (3) hydrologic impacts of precipitation extremes and anticipated change. This collection also includes a meeting summary published in BAMS: 10.1175/BAMS-D-20-0014.1.

The support by NSF (grant EAR-1928724) and NASA (grant 80NSSC19K0726) to organize the 12th International Precipitation Conference (IPC12), Irvine California, June 2019, and produce the IPC12 special collection of papers is gratefully acknowledged.
