Abstract
Understanding groundwater hydrology processes for groundwater management requires from accurate information on the hydrologic cycle. Of special importance is the water balance parameters identification and groundwater recharge quantification. Assessment of groundwater recharge requires of detailed understanding of natural recharge dynamics in a catchment in response to rainfall events spatially and temporally distributed. Precipitation (P) and temperature (T) data series are critically important in studies quantifying the groundwater balance. Arid and semiarid water balance dynamics is usually influenced by hazards of drought and desiccation and both temperature and rainfall play key roles in hydrological processes. However, lack, inaccuracy or low spatial and temporal resolution of rainfall data sets are commonly found in arid zones. The use of remote sensing has been identifying as a step forward addressing the paucity of high resolution rainfall time series at daily scale. Moreover, data from geostationary satellites are generally available in near real-time and cover large areas.
