Abstract:The lack of meteorological observation data limits the hydro-climatic analysis and modeling, especially for the ungauged or data-limited regions, while satellite and reanalysis products can provide potential data sources in these regions. In this study, three daily products, including two satellite products (Tropic Rainfall Measuring Mission Multi-Satellite Precipitation Analysis, TMPA 3B42 and 3B42RT) and one reanalysis product (China Meteorological Assimilation Driving Datasets for the SWAT Model, CMADS), were used to assess the capacity of hydro-climatic simulation based on the statistical method and hydrological model in Ganjiang River Basin (GRB), a humid basin of southern China. CAMDS, TMPA 3B42 and 3B42RT precipitation were evaluated against ground-based observation based on multiple statistical metrics at different temporal scales. The similar evaluation was carried out for CMADS temperature. Then, eight scenarios were constructed into calibrating the Soil and Water Assessment
