We propose a new methodology for evaluating predictive cumulative distribution functions (CDF) of ground effects for flood forecasting in mountainous environments. The methodology is based on the proper nesting of models suitable for probabilistic meteorological forecast, downscaling of rainfall, and hydrological modeling in order to provide a probabilistic prediction of ground effects of heavy rainfall events. Different ways of nesting are defined as function of the ratio between three typical scales: sc…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
