Satellite estimates of precipitation are key to understanding the global water cycle with high temporal resolution. These chapters address particular challenges in analyzing precipitation over land, including understanding rain/norain classification, making retrievals over complex terrain, integration of model information (which is important in areas where satellites have trouble making retrievals), and intercalibration of all precipitation-relevant satellites.
