Canadian Precipitation Analysis (CaPA)

Portfolio Image

Project Description

The goal of the precipitation analysis production system (CaPA) from Environment Canada is to provide the best possible estimates of precipitation accumulation for grid points on a geographical domain. The statistical technique used allows for the combination of different sources of precipitation information in order to provide the estimate. The current set up of CaPA at the Canadian Meteorological Center (CMC) combines a trial field from the REG-LAM3D atmospheric model at a resolution of 15 kilometers.
