Summary
More than 20 years after the last book on the subject the worldwide precipitation community has produced a comprehensive overview of its activities, achievements, ongoing research and future plans. Measuring Precipitation from Space presents state-of-the-art rainfall estimation algorithms, validation strategies, precipitation modelling, and assimilation in numerical weather prediction models. Clouds and precipitation observations and modelling are addressed for the improvement of the rainfall product quality. Special attention is given to the applications to monitoring and forecasting weather events and to climate monitoring in a frame of growing public interest. No other book can offer to scientists, Ph. D. or equivalent students, professionals in environmental disciplines, and decision makers such a powerful tool to understand the basics of remote sensing for precipitation, to make use of existing products and to have a glimpse of the near future missions and instruments. Other categories of readers will find in the book reference material for their questions on weather and climate applications. The essays are written by the most qualified experts in the field of passive and active remote sensing, cloud and mesoscale modelling, validation and space mission planning. Top academic and research institutions and space agencies have concurred to the first joint effort ever
