Abstract

A physical model for high-resolution (Δx = 1-2 km) rainfall over complex terrain that was recently verified against radar-derived observations is shown to be capable of complementing rainfall normals in Israel. Two examples illustrate that even high resolution rain-gauge networks may miss important small-scale rainfall features over highly complec terrain, which are effectively detected by a simplified linear and adiabatic model.
