Publications about the TAMSAT rainfall dataset used for SATIDA

If you are interested in a detailed description of the datasets we use, in this case precipitation, please check out these two publications. Both are open access.

Tarnavsky et al. (2014): Extension of the TAMSAT Satellite-Based Rainfall Monitoring over Africa and from 1983 to Present

Maidment et al. (2014): The 30 year TAMSAT African Rainfall Climatology and Time series (TARCAT) data set



We are currently discussing the next steps with team team of the global broadcast data startup OUTERNET.

This will give us the unique chance to transmit all kinds of relevant information to the most remote place.
