An assessment of extreme precipitation events (EPEs) is performed using the high-resolution (0.2°) gridded daily precipitation database available for the IP, the accumulated precipitation from ERA-Interim reanalysis by EMCWF at 6-hour intervals, and the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) Multisatellite Precipitation Analysis (TMPA) dataset, based on multisatellite estimates of precipitation and gauges measurements, for the common period since 1998. This study presents an analysis and validation of the extreme precipitation characteristics over IP, using both satellite and ground observations. Results show that there is a good general agreement between total precipitation analysis from observational gridded and TRMM datasets, both temporal and spatially, although TRMM TMPA results are underestimated when compared to observations and ERA Interim data.
