      Article
      Open Access
      The availability of quality precipitation records in the current climate situation is of great importance in the scientifctechnical feld but also for the public institutions that manage the meteorological networks. This ...
    • A simple scaling analysis of rainfall in Andalusia (Spain) under different precipitation regimes 

      Casas Castillo, M. del Carmen; Rodríguez Solá, Raúl; Llabrés Brustenga, Alba; García Marín, Amanda Penélope; Estévez Gualda, Javier; Navarro Bosque, Javier (2022-04-16)
      Article
      Open Access
      A simple scaling analysis was performed in Andalusia (Spain) using daily records from 377 selected stations covering the temporal period between 1870 and 2018. Since Andalusia is a region of considerable climatic variety, ...
    • A single scaling parameter as a first approximation to describe the rainfall pattern of a place: application on Catalonia 

      Casas Castillo, M. del Carmen; Llabrés Brustenga, Alba; Rius, Anna; Rodríguez Solá, Raúl; Navarro Bosque, Javier (2018-02-17)
      Article
      Open Access
      As well as in other natural processes, it has been frequently observed that the phenomenon arising from the rainfall generation process presents fractal self-similarity of statistical type, and thus, rainfall series generally ...
    • Influence of regional and seasonal rainfall patterns on the ratio between fixed and unrestricted measured intervals of rainfall amounts 

      Llabrés Brustenga, Alba; Rius Ventosa, Anna; Rodríguez Solá, Raúl; Casas Castillo, M. del Carmen (2020-01-14)
      Article
      Open Access
      Historically, most precipitation data have been measured by collecting rainfall, usually at intervals of 24 h, with a fixed starting time. Nonetheless, it is known that the use of fixed time intervals to measure rainfall ...
    • Quality control process of the daily rainfall series available in Catalonia from 1855 to the present 

      Llabrés Brustenga, Alba; Rius Ventosa, Anna; Rodríguez Solá, Raúl; Casas Castillo, M. del Carmen; Redaño Xipell, Angel (2019-08-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      The quality control of weather data is a necessity and a responsibility of meteorological services that store, distribute, and use these data. In the present work, a newly designed quality control procedure for daily ...
    • Quality Management Framework for Climate Datasets 

      Lacagnina, Carlo; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco; Larnicol, Gilles; Buontempo, Carlo; Obregón, André; Costa Surós, Montserrat; Bretonnière, Pierre-Antoine; Llabrés Brustenga, Alba; Pérez-Zanón, Núria (Ubiquity Press, 2022)
      Article
      Open Access
      Data from a variety of research programmes are increasingly used by policy makers, researchers, and private sectors to make data-driven decisions related to climate change and variability. Climate services are emerging as ...
    • The history of rainfall data time-resolution in a wide variety of geographical areas 

      Morbidelli, Renato; García Marín, Amanda; Al Mamun, Abdullah; Casas Castillo, M. del Carmen; Llabrés Brustenga, Alba; Rodríguez Solá, Raúl; Sousa Martín, Arturo (Elsevier, 2020-11)
      Article
      Open Access
      Collected rainfall records by gauges lead to key forcings in most hydrological studies. Depending on sensor type and recording systems, such data are characterized by different time-resolutions (or temporal aggregations), ...
