A new time-splitting method for the integration of the compressible Euler equations is presented. It is based on a two-step peer method, which is a general linear method with second-order accuracy in every stage. The scheme uses a computationally very efficient forward–backward scheme for the integration of the high-frequency acoustic modes. With this splitting approach it is possible to stably integrate the compressible Euler equations without any artificial damping. The peer method is tested with the dry Euler equations and a comparison with the common split-explicit second-order three-stage Runge–Kutta method by Wicker and Skamarock shows the potential of the class of peer methods with respect to computational efficiency, stability, and accuracy.

    Rainfall is a significant portion of hydrologic data. Rainfall records, however, are often incomplete due to several factors. In this study, the inverse distance weighting (IDW) method integrated with GIS is used to estimate the rainfall distribution in Duhok Governorate. A total of 25 rain fall...
