Abstract
One of the most important hydrologic variables is the total precipitation over a finite area during a specified period of time. The area of interest frequently is located within rugged terrain that offers a difficult background for observation by remote sensing, including weather radar. Surface observations at widely scattered points within the region often fail to provide sufficiently representative data for inferring the spatially-integrated precipitation. On the other hand, it is believed that useful information on precipitation can be deduced from data collected routinely by meteorological satellites.
