IPWG U.S. Validation Page



* This validation is performed against daily rain gauge analyses and include various precipiation estimates that incorporate
precipitation from 8 or more satellites. However, the MiRS and MSPPS estimates are derived from 2-3 satellites and thus
are at a serious disadvantage, from a sampling perspective, compared to the other satellite estimates.
