Short summary
The development of effective methods for high-accuracy precipitation estimates over complex terrain and on a daily scale is important for mountainous hydrological applications. This study offers a novel approach called WHU-SGCC by blending rain gauge and satellite data to estimate daily precipitation at 0.05° resolution over the Jinsha River basin, the complicated mountainous terrain with sparse rain gauge data, considering the spatial correlation and historical precipitation characteristics.
