Short summary
For realistic flood predictions, it is necessary to have accurate rainfall estimates. The Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model is often used to correctly simulate heavy rainfall events, but setting up the model over a region is a challenging task. In this study, the sensitivity of the WRF model is assessed for physics schemes, parameterization options, land surface models and downscaling ratios, by simulating several extreme rainfall events in the Ganges basin.
For realistic flood predictions, it is necessary to have accurate rainfall estimates. The...
