A paper has been recently published in the journal Earth-Science Reviews on recent progress on the sources of continental precipitation developed by moisture transport analysis. This paper with the participation of the members of the Instituto Dom Luiz (IDL) Marta Vázquez Institute, Rogert Sorí, Milica Stojanovic, and Alexandre Ramos, presents the main advances related to the evaluation of the impact of the moisture source on the rainfall distribution. This evaluation is essential for the understanding of the hydrological cycle at different time scales since it allows the establishment of relationships between the source and the identification of the main means of moisture transport, which results in precipitation.
