), and an advanced quality control (QC) of automated hourly gauge observations ( Qi et al. 2016 ) for local gauge correction of radar-derived QPE ( Zhang et al. 2016 ). Research studies and precipitation estimation intercomparisons have demonstrated the effectiveness of the aforementioned algorithms on the performance of MRMS QPEs (e.g., Cocks et al. 2016 , 2017 ). It is important to understand the current skill and challenges of generating accurate rainfall accumulations during landfalling

gained from this small but systematic ensemble. Our high-resolution RCM ensemble is currently unique for Germany and presents a concerted modeling effort both for RCM simulations and hydrological modeling, resulting in a consistent model chain for the hydrological impact analysis of climate change in Germany. The model chain was implemented for the Ammer, Mulde, and Ruhr catchments—chosen to represent different flood regimes in Germany ( Beurton and Thieken 2009 ). The three study areas are described

current Weather Surveillance Radar-1988 Doppler (WSR-88D) Next Generation Weather Radar (NEXRAD) network. Based on data measured by the NEXRAD network, the National Mosaic and the next-generation quantitative precipitation estimation system (NMQ/Q2) ( Vasiloff et al. 2007 ; Zhang et al. 2011 ) is a real-time test bed comprising high-resolution (1 km, 5 min) multisensor precipitation products. A web-based display and a rain gauge–based validation system have been built for the datasets and are freely

decision-making. For example, rain-on-snow events with a higher transition elevation and antecedent ground snowpack could enhance flood risk since the snowmelt contributes additional runoff to rainfall totals ( Musselman et al. 2018 ; White et al. 2019 ). The rain–snow-transition zone is the elevation range where cold-season precipitation is a mix of rain and snow, with its upper boundary being all snow, and the lower boundary being all rain. The rain–snow-transition elevation is approximately the

sustainable groundwater development, defined as current and future groundwater use that will not cause undesirable environmental consequences ( Alley et al. 1999 ). Over the past several decades, overexploitation of groundwater resources has led to depleted aquifers, land subsidence, groundwater contamination, decreased low flow, and seawater intrusion in many regions across the world ( Robins 1998 ; Konikow and Kendy 2005 ; Kuhn et al. 2007 ; Rodell et al. 2009 ; Wada et al. 2010 ; Famiglietti et al

monsoon). This method defines ARs on the basis of moisture transport and connected object characteristics only. Therefore, it does not consider spatiotemporally related phenomena (e.g., fronts and extratropical cyclones) that are part of the phenomenological understanding of ARs in the global climate. Defining ARs in this way is consistent with current literature ( Shields et al. 2018 ), and it is beyond the scope of this study to attempt to link AR objects with any phenomena besides extreme

1. Introduction The interactions between land and atmosphere play a significant role in the climate and weather system. Variations in land states affect the atmosphere through their effects on surface fluxes of sensible and latent heat, and the subsequent impact of those fluxes on the atmosphere vertical structures and mixing processes. Land surface controls on atmospheric boundary layer properties have been well demonstrated (e.g., Ek and Holtslag 2004 ; Gentine et al. 2013 ). Recognizing

estimates agree best during summer, when a considerable mixing within the atmospheric boundary layer is present. Precipitation estimates agree best during winter, when large-scale precipitation patterns dominate over convective precipitation. b. High-resolution hindcast series Gridded temperature and precipitation hindcasts with hourly temporal resolution and 0.1° grid spacing are available for the time period between September 1957 and December 2010. These hindcast series have been generated by the

al. 2008 ). The SRI can be determined by field survey or derived from observed rainfall–runoff data of each subcatchment ( Ebrahimian et al. 2016 ), due to the explicitly physical meaning of the unit boundary and the relatively small amount of calculation units. However, to better characterize the high spatial variability, fully distributed models always present more competency ( Chao et al. 2019 ), especially in the application to the urban area with extremely complicated surface conditions

1. Introduction Soil moisture is a critical variable, impacting and informing a wide variety of scientific disciplines and applications. Soil moisture influences the climate system through modification of energy and moisture fluxes into the boundary layer, thereby influencing temperature, humidity, and precipitation ( McPherson 2007 ; Seneviratne et al. 2010 ; Santanello et al. 2011 ). This influence, or memory, from anomalously wet or dry soils can have a persistent impact on the atmosphere
