Access from EThOS:
Data from Meteosat thermal infrared (TIR) imagery are related to rainfall measured directly by gauges at meteorological stations in the Republic of Niger (West Africa), spanning between 0 and 14 °E and 12 and 18 ON. Quantitative physical parameters of 116 clouds from hourly TIR are then examined with the aim of establishing meaningful relations between them and ground observed rainfall.
