# Spatial and temporal modeling of radar rainfall uncertainties

Building on earlier efforts, the authors apply a data-driven multiplicative model in which the relationship between true rainfall and radar rainfall can be described in terms of the product of a systematic and random component. For the first time, the authors present a methodology based on conditional copulas to generate ensembles of random error fields with the prescribed marginal probability distribution and spatio-temporal dependencies.
