New project for the development of an integrated satellite rainfall-soil moisture product over Europe


On June, 15, IRPI CNR started a new project the framework of the EUMETSAT SAF in support to Hydrology (H-SAF) with the subject “Integration of PR-OBS-5 and SM-OBS-1 products through SM2RAIN algorithm for improving rainfall estimate”. The main purpose of the project is the development, testing and validation of a new cumulated rainfall product (over 12 and 24 hours) that integrates satellite rainfall and soil moisture (through SM2RAIN) H-SAF datasets throughout Europe.
