The paper shows the analysis of the spatial scale of rainfall produced by a back-building Mesoscale Convective System. • The analysis is conducted combining rain gauge and radar observations. • The results show that the spatial scale is of the same order of (or lower than) the density of rain gauge networks. • This may significantly impact the estimation of the actual rainfall maxima and their return period.

Abstract

The paper shows the analysis of the spatial scale of rainfall produced by a back-building Mesoscale Convective System. • The analysis is conducted combining rain gauge and radar observations. • The results show that the spatial scale is of the same order of (or lower than) the density of rain gauge networks. • This may significantly impact the estimation of the actual rainfall maxima and their return period.
