Abstract

Global Precipitations and Climate Change. Michel tion estimates are analyzed, including geostatistical Desbois and Frangoise Desalmand, Eds. 1994. 466 approaches to area-averaging precipitation fields. pp. $214.00. Hardbound. Springer-Verlag. ISBN 3- Importantly, two papers in this section examine 540-58439-0. inhomogeneities and errors in precipitation data. These types of errors in data collection and analysis can be significant, and the results of this section lead to This comprehensive book summarizes the NATO recommendations about measurement procedures (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) Advanced Re- and appropriate corrections. search Workshop on Global Precipitations and Cli- mate Change, which was held at I'Agelonde, France, The four papers on satellite data analysis describe from 27 September to 1 October 1993.
