Analysis of Rain Rate Spatial Cross-Correlation Coefficients in the Basque Country Area
MetadataShow full item record
This paper reports on a study on the spatial characteristics of rain rates recorded in the Basque region in northern Spain. To perform this study a network of eighty raingauges spread throughout the region has been used. Statistical parameters such as the spatial cross-correlation coefficient and the space-time cross-correlation coefficient were calculated and their evolution with separation distance studied. It is hoped that information reported could be useful in better understanding characteristics of rain and in developing countermeasures for terrestrial and satellite radio networks operating at frequencies above 10 GHz.
