Evaluation of SIR-B data for identifying rainfall event occurrence and intensityThe utility of shuttle imaging radar-B (SIR-B) data for the detection and measurement of rainfall events is to be investigated. The investigation is described along with the approach for data acquisition, handling, and analysis. Anticipated results are also considered. The CROPCAST rainfall estimation technique is discussed.
