Abstract
APPLIED RESEARCH CORPORATION PROPOSES TO EXAMINE THE ESTIMATION OF GLOBAL RAINFALL BY LOGISTIC REGRESSION ANALYSIS. WE WILL APPLY THE ANALYSIS ON THE GATE DATA, USING AS COVARIATES SUCH AS HEIGHT OF THE RAIN COLUMN, MICROWAVE TEMPERATURE ANDFRACTIONAL CLOUD COVER; IDENTIFY IMPORTANT PARAMETERS IN THE ESTIMATION PROCEDURE; DEVELOP LOGISTIC REGRESSION MODELS FOR RAINFALL ESTIMATION; APPLY THE ANALYSIS ON SIMULATED RAINFALL DATA; AND COMPARE RESULTS FROM OUR STUDY WITH OTHER ESTIMATES.
