WC product was also compared against the NWS Stage IV QPE, a combination of WSR-88D radar QPE and gauge observations generated by NWS river forecast centers ( Lin and Mitchell 2005 ). Statistical analyses of Stage IV QPEs versus CoCoRaHS were not conducted, since CoCoRaHS gauges were not independent to Stage IV QPE. Gridded differences between Stage IV and the MRMS Q WC products were generated for both Harvey and Florence. NWS Stage IV 24-h QPE are generated daily at 1200 UTC; thus, gridded

two successive IR images and a Kalman filter ( Ushio et al. 2009 ). For the comparison with the GSMaP_MVK estimates, we use the TMPA near-real-time version product (3B42RT). Multisatellite MWR rainfall estimates are calibrated by the TRMM estimates, and the geostationary IR rainfall estimates are made by calibrating IR Tbs with the MWR rainfall estimates using a histogram-matching technique ( Huffman et al. 2007 ). The TMPA 3B42RT rain estimates consist of the MWR estimates where available and the

. Acquisition techniques, hence, still have not measured precipitation adequately ( Strangeways 2004 ; Tapiador et al. 2012 ). Those techniques have been developed scientifically over time from ground-based measurements (e.g., rain gauge networks and weather radars) to satellite-based measurements. Rain-gauge networks are acknowledged as the direct reference of precipitation for their capability to quantify precipitation physically over point locations ( Tapiador et al. 2012 ). However, these networks have

-scale R sd directly from these records because the traditional interpolation techniques for upscaling point observations are not appropriate for the sparsely distributed radiation network over a large domain. Machine-learning is a powerful tool to draw information from both ground observations and satellite products of surface radiation ( Mellit et al. 2010 ; Wang et al. 2012 ; Yang et al. 2018 ; Wei et al. 2019 ). The model tree ensemble (MTE) technique ( Jung et al. 2010 ) is one of the machine

represent vital sources of data in weather and climate studies. A typical reanalysis system consists of two main components: the forecast model and the data assimilation system. The role of the data assimilation system is to integrate many sources of observations to provide the forecast model with the most accurate representation of initial atmospheric states. Then, the numerical weather forecast models are executed for a given time step to produce consistent gridded datasets ( Di Luzio et al. 2008

data, prescribed land surface properties, and initial and boundary conditions). Another source of uncertainty arises from model structure and parameterization based on our understanding of hydrological processes and how they should be parameterized. Reductions of such uncertainty rely on improved understanding of the physics and its effective representation in models. Such uncertainties can be reduced by optimizing model parameter sets using model calibration techniques with available historical

are much needed to aid in the understanding of complicated precipitation processes and the verification of satellite precipitation products and numerical weather prediction (NWP) models. Recently, the National Meteorological Information Center (NMIC) of the China Meteorological Administration (CMA) started providing the 0.1°-resolution gridded hourly precipitation product across China from 2008 onward ( Pan et al. 2012 ). This product is developed using the optimum interpolation technique by
