Abstract: [1] Scale-recursive estimation (SRE) is a Kalman-filter-based methodology, which can be used to produce optimal (in terms of bias and minimum variance) estimates of a field at any desired scale given uncertain and sparse observations at different scales. SRE requires the specification of the state equation, which describes the variability of the precipitation process across scales, and the observation equation, which relates the observations to the state. Typical models for describing the multiscale rainfall …
