Guido Sciuto is currently PhD student, within the Transregional Collaborative Research Centre 32: “Patterns in Soil-Vegetation-Atmosphere Systems: Monitoring, Modelling and Data Assimilation”, at Bonn University, Germany, supervised by Prof. Dr. Bernd Diekkrüger. His research focuses on the 3-D modelling of water and solute transport. The main objective of his research is to develop methods for a scale dependent treatment of patterns in properties and boundary conditions while simulating water, CO2 and solute transport from micro- to mesoscale catchments. The EGU 2009 poster presents a method for statistical quality control of daily precipitation data, developed within the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at University of Catania, Italy. This method reduce significantly the amount of the data to be processed by a further manual control.
