This special issue of the Journal of Geophysical Research (Atmospheres) is a collection of 15 papers on Rainfall Fields that was presented at the Chapman Conference held in Venezuela in March, 1986. This conference brought together hydrologists, meteorologists, and mathematicians/statisticians from North American, European and Latin American communities. These papers cover a broad range of topics in characterizing, estimating, analyzing and predicting rainfall, including rainfall measurement, dynamic and stochastic modeling of rainfall, stochastic-dynamic links in modeling rainfall, parameter estimation, drawing inferences of stochastic models, and predicting future rainfall dynamics.
