Seasonal and regional variability in scaling properties and correlation structure of high resolution precipitation data in a highly heterogeneous mountain environment (Switzerland)
A large dataset of high resolution 10-min precipitation data from 62 stations across Switzerland with an average of 21 years of observations are studied to explore the generality in the scaling relationships and correlation structure of precipitation. The focus is on the seasonal and regional variability in scaling and correlation parameters and their interdependency. It is shown that seasonal effects are generally stronger than regional ones. The summer season shows more structure in precipitation, a shorter autocorrelation range due to convective activity, high growth of intermittency and ...
