- atmospheric precipitation, kriging, methodology
- In this article we propose a new method - the Most Probable Precipitation Method (MPPM) - for estimating the precipitation at regional scale. Comparisons with the Thiessen polygons methods (TPM), inverse distance weighting interpolation (IDW) and ordinary kriging (OK) on annual, monthly, seasonal and annual maximum monthly precipitation are provided. In all cases MPPM performs better than IDW and OK, and in most of them, better than TPM.
