We present the results of three pilot studies for high-resolution rainfall monitoring using CML networks over Nigeria, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh in collaboration with local gsm operators. We focus in particular on several densely populated urban areas with high link network density. We also discuss some of the challenges and opportunities regarding continental-scale rainfall monitoring using microwave links from cellular communication networks. We show comparisons with satellite products and rain gauges.
