Validation of the HIC rain gauges data : year 2020

This report summarizes the results of the validation of the data recorded during the year 2020 by 20 rain gauges operated by HIC. This validation is made by RMI and integrates two aspects.First, a human operator routinely monitors the data on successive periods of 24 hours. Issues detected on that daily timeframe are directly corrected. Second, monthly and annual values from the validated HIC data are compared against neighboring stations data as well as radar-derivedrainfall estimates. Both validation aspects are treated in this report.
