Abstract. This paper describes and comments the results obtained applying a data processing method to a joint set of radar and a rain gauge data for estimating the 2-D rainfall field at ground averaged over a given observation time T and over a radar coverage area that includes a rain gauge network. The estimate of the rainfall field is based on the processing of a data set composed by rain gauge and horizontal reflectivity radar data gathered during a rainfall phenomenon. The procedure has been tested on an experimental data set collected in Tuscany in 1999.
