APHRODITE-2 Sakura Science Workshop in Hirosaki
To make APHRODITE precipitation grid data and Evaluate extreme precipitaion This program aims to learn how to create Asian Precipitation -- HighlyResolved Observation DataIntegration Towards Evaluation of waterresources (APHRODITE) product. It is world's known accurate daily gridprecipitaion data, and currently more than 5,000 users in the world areoperating it. Now, APHRODITE project second phase (APHRODITE-2) is ongoing to represent precipitation extreme events, since present(reseased) gathers young staffs/students who have already handledAPHRODITE data and would like to make APHRODITE data by themselves. Inaddition, we teach the most updated scheme to represent extremeprecipitation to the participants. Based on this improvement, users canuse APHRODITE new products for evaluating satellite estimates and forimproving meteological forecasts. Participants can communicate withyoung staffs/students at Hirosaki University.
22-29 August, 2018
