A rainfall analysis and forecasting tool

Abstract: MENSEI-L is a stand-alone software tool for the automatic analysis of pluviometric networks, that also provides three-day rainfall forecasts based on weather types. The software tool, implemented in Python and R, is able to fill missing values in original daily data series and to generate synthetic pluviometers in ungauged locations, by means of kriging techniques. MENSEI-L also characterizes punctual and spatial, average and extreme distributions of precipitation for the complete pluviometric network. Tenerife (Canary Islands, Spain) is used as study site to evaluate the capabilities of MENSEI-L and the implicit rainfall analysis methodology that it implements. MENSEI-L proves to be a useful tool to extract information from dense observation networks where manual analysis is not practical.
