Radar rainfall nowcasts for 1,533 events spread over 12 Dutch catchments



This repository contains the radar rainfall nowcasts for 1,533 rainfall events spread over 12 basins in the Netherlands, from Imhoff et al. (2020). The basins, a combination of freely draining catchments and polder areas, are: Aa, Beemster, Delfland, Dwarsdiep, Grote Waterleiding, Hupsel, Linde, Luntersebeek, Regge, Reusel, Rijnland and Roggelsebeek. More catchment information can be found in figure 1 in Imhoff et al. (2020). The nowcasts were run with the radar composite of the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute for the period 2008 – 2018. Subsequently, the nowcasts were clipped to the extent of one of the basins and saved.
