Abstract The demand for precipitation fields on a regular grid is growing dramatically as ecological and hydrological models become increasingly linked to spatial representations. However, a lack of data, as well as a conceptual framework for orographic precipitation, has hindered the development of accurate precipitation grids for complex terrain. The paper presents an analytical model that distributed point measurements of monthly average precipitation to a regular grid at regional to continental scales.
