Zusammenfassung:The main objective of this research is to study the downscaling of precipitation at basin scale in the Paute river basin, which is located in the tropical Andes of Southern Ecuador. The main assumption is that, by incorporating orographic information in the downscaling of precipitation, improved estimates of precipitation can be achieved. Such research is important, both from a scientific perspective as well as for water resource management and planning assessment for this developing country.
