vertical. Ground-based radar and rain gauge observations provide some validation for satellite precipitation measurements. The former suffer from an inexact relationship between radar reflectivity and precipitation rate. The latter are associated with large representativeness errors. There is little or no ground truth over oceans, although progress is being made in developing acoustic rain gauges. While most ground-based measurements of precipitation may be considered more accurate than retrievals
