Congo rain forests. Given the relative uniformity of emissivity over the tropical rain forest, which tends to be less dynamic due to year-round vegetation and relative insensitivity to surface soil moisture changes under the heavy canopy, this presents further evidence that using a TPW value retrieved using the coincident observations versus ancillary data has the potential to improve the GPM PMW precipitation algorithm. The false alarms using the GPROF Class constraints are very similar to a Φ N

. In this manuscript, the term “complex surfaces” refers to land surfaces whose emissivity is controlled by a large number of factors such as vegetation conditions, soil type and moisture ( Harrison et al. 2015 ), and (for frozen surfaces) the snow and/or ice properties ( Hirahara et al. 2020 ), but also surfaces whose geophysical properties are not homogeneous over the resolution of the PMW radiometer field of view including mixed land–water ( Gouweleeuw et al. 2012 ) and coastal boundaries ( Mega

definition. The threshold definition ( Segele and Lamb 2005 ) is defined as a 3-day accumulation of 20 mm or more after 1 April, with no dry spells (<0.1 mm each day for at least eight days) in the next 30 days. Although this is seemingly arbitrary, it is useful for local agronomy, acting as a proxy for soil moisture ( MacLeod 2018 ), and it was specifically developed for the relatively wet areas of northwest Ethiopia considered in this study. In contrast, two precipitation anomaly-based definitions are

several meteorological forcing variables, including surface precipitation rate, incoming shortwave and longwave radiations, air temperature, specific humidity, surface air pressure, and wind speeds in both horizontal and vertical directions. Using these forcing inputs, the LSM simulates runoff production (e.g., soil infiltration, surface and subsurface overflow, and channel inflow), soil moisture and temperature, canopy energy exchange, and soil moisture versus groundwater interaction, etc. ( Niu et

. Climate conditions, topography, and regional land–atmosphere feedbacks drive these aspects of temporal persistence and spatial synchronicity of precipitation, which in turn influence soil moisture, flows, and vegetation. For example, the direction, speed, and size of a storm event moving across a basin can impact downstream flows and ecohydrologic processes. Goodwell and Kumar (2019) explored temporal precipitation persistence and predictability, addressing the extent to which the knowledge of past

producing error estimates in the first place, another challenge is enabling environmental models to ingest such estimates. One approach is to generate ensembles consisting of multiple realizations of precipitation time series or space–time fields and then use each ensemble member to drive a prediction model. This approach allows prediction models to be used without any particular modification, as demonstrated in a number of studies using stochastic rainfall input for soil moisture and landslide hazard
