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

forecasts, many weather models still have biases in interior complex terrain areas of the western United States ( Gowan et al. 2018 ). Several research projects have investigated the relationship between precipitation and elevation in the western United States. Lull and Ellison (1950) used precipitation observations in central Utah to develop a linear relationship between precipitation and elevation. Others have used more complex combinations of precipitation observations and terrain features to

-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

, influencing the climate on monthly to seasonal time scales ( Dirmeyer et al. 2009 ; Lorenz et al. 2010 ; Orth and Seneviratne 2014 ). Therefore, accurate soil moisture information is critical for subseasonal-to-seasonal climate prediction as well as forecasting extreme events at those time scales ( Mahanama et al. 2008 ; Guo et al. 2011 ; Ford et al. 2018 ). In addition to playing an integral role in the global climate system, soil moisture is often used as an indicator of agricultural drought

using BBH Ptype data may be more clearly identified for each event. Techniques for streamflow data assimilation with the lumped model (e.g., Seo et al. 2009 ) and distributed model (e.g., Lee et al. 2011 ) are progressing. Anticipating that further analyses would lead to more consistent improvements, use of the BBH data (spatially constant or variable) for precipitation typing in real time hydrologic forecasting would be computationally feasible. Gridded data such as multisensor QPE have been used

1. Introduction Radar quantitative precipitation estimation (QPE) is critical for extreme rainfall monitoring, forecast, and decision-making during contingent flash floods, mudslides, and debris flows. However, weather radars often suffer from complete or partial beam blockage (PBB) induced by surrounding terrains ( Giangrande and Ryzhkov 2005 ; Zhang et al. 2013 ; Chen et al. 2020 ). The PBB effect is more evident in mountainous areas and/or complex urban environments because of the
