info reqd. precipitation information from salinity data
i wish to know if theres a way to get precipitation information from salinity data.
any information in this regard is most welcome
Can you please explain , Why do you intended to find Precipitation from Salinity ?
I am sorry if this question seems unnecessary.
1. If you are intended to carry out a Precipitation analysis, you can depend
directly on Precipitation data. CMAP provides 2.5 degree (i think so) global
preicipitaion, by associating available rain gage observation
with satellite ones, as well as model results. Also, precipitation are available
from NCEP/NCAR, ECMWF ...(refer our Data Analysis section).
2. Now, if your intention is to estimate the precipitation as
salt flux (we may call it as fresh water flux) for any modeling purpose,
we can estimate this for the model from the climatological
salinity data. This is not so unrealistic, because, the climatology salinity (as we
observe in the ocean) include the effect of precipitation. Thus, inspite of
prescribing the precipitaiton itslef, we can relax the surface salinity of
the model to a pre-defined Salinity data. (i am not including any condition
of relaxation methods here).
3. Now, (though it is just opposite to your question), i am adding an information
here, there are algorithms to develop Salinity data from Satellite OLR
(Outgoing Longwave Radiation) observations. Dr. V.S.N. Murty (NIO, Goa) and his
team had worked over this and published in G.J.R.(oceans 2004/5).
