Calculation of Precipitation Layer as a Water Balance Component of the Sea of Azov

V. P. Evstigneev, D. V. Mishin, and L. P. Ostroumova

A statistical model of the spatial coupling of precipitation over the Sea of Azov is con- structed using SEVIRI radiometer data. The set of four locations of precipitation field was identified to retrieve integral precipitation layer over the sea. It was found that the model can be applied for the water-balance studies of the Sea of Azov based on data from coastal weather stations.
