EGU 2007 - Precipitation Special Session

European Geosciences Union
General Assembly 2007
Vienna, Austria, 15 - 20 April 2007

Esteemed colleague
We would like to bring to your attention that a session entitled 'Observation, Prediction and Verification of Precipitation (General Session)' will be held at the next European Geosciences Union General Assembly 2007 in Vienna, Austria, 15 - 20 April 2007.  Please consider the opportunity of submitting your contribution.  The deadline for submitting an abstract is 15 January 2007.
Contributions regarding the following topics are solicited:

Precipitation measurements:

Precipitation measurements (amount, duration, intensity etc.) by ground-based /in situ/ sensors (e.g. rain gauges, disdrometers); estimation of accuracy of measurements,  comparison of measuring instrumentation.

Precipitation estimation:

Remote sensing of precipitation (e.g. spaceborne, airborne, ground-based, underwater, or shipborne sensors); methodologies used for the estimation, validation, and assessment of error and uncertainty of precipitation as measured by remote sensors.

Precipitation forecasting:

Quantitative precipitation forecasts from numerical weather prediction models; probabilistic approaches; verification of precipitation forecasts using different techniques (e.g. gridded and object oriented); quantitative precipitation forecasting with radar data and validation; experimental model studies on precipitation forecasting.

Information on EGU 2007 and abstract submission procedure is available at (Atmospheric Sciences: AS1.03: Observation, Prediction and Verification of Precipitation (General Session)).

We hope that you will be able to participate in this significant event, and we are looking forward to seeing you in Vienna.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
