The Representation of Extreme Precipitation in the HadRM3P Regional Climate Model

Faisal Al Zawad, 2009: Climate Change in Saudi Arabia on a Regional Scale: Impacts on Evaporation, Surface Runoff and Soil Moisture

"This book is the first in introducing the use of PRECIS... Even though this book is about Saudi Arabia, the techniques used can be applied easily to other regions in the world."
