The climate hazards infrared precipitation with stations—a new environmental record for monitoring extremes

In this section, we present a sample application of the CHIRPS, based on hydrologic simulations over East Africa, which has experienced exceptional drying during boreal spring31. The reasonably long period of record, low latency, high resolution and daily disaggregations of the CHIRPS make it suitable for hydrologic modeling. Focusing on East Africa, and especially southeastern (SE) Ethiopia, we demonstrate how CHIRPS can be used to support humanitarian relief efforts while…
