Abstract

The relationship between rainfall and soil moisture estimates computed from newly available real-time radar-estimated, gage, and multi-sensor gridded rainfall was examined. These estimates were compared with those computed using the National Climatic Data center (NCDC) edited daily cooperative rainfall data, for a 9-state region. The comparison revealed that the multi-sensor and the radar rainfall and soil moisture estimates both contain biases that are related to individual radars.
