Speech Title: Estimating the Regional Precipitation

Abstract: Rainfall estimating is important for flood forecasting, water balance computation, water resources and drought management. Estimating, modeling and predicting the precipitation evolution are of practical importance, especially in arid regions. Geostatistics offers a range of methods to estimate the precipitation at regional scale, but sometimes these methods require additional data that are not always available or very complicated algorithms. In this context, we present new methods for estimating the regional precipitations that are easy to implement and use. They extend the Most Probable Precipitation Method (MPPM), are based on matrix computation and Swarm Particle Optimization. Better results are obtained compared with the ordinary kriging, IDW and Thiessen polygons method.
