The motivation for OLYMPEX was not only to better understand orographic modification of frontal precipitation
processes but also to satisfy the need for further development and refinement of algorithms used to convert GPM's satellite measurements to precipitation amounts in midlatitudes.
Precipitation events caused by the convergence of fronts is called cyclonic or frontal precipitation
2 using data collected during the IOP 8 frontal precipitation
event (29 September 2012).
