Spatial map of prescribed soil moisture sensitivity (PSMsens (slope values)) of a rainfall amount, b rainfall frequency, c rainfall intensity, and d rainfall extremes as a function of the prescribed soil moisture value. All variables of rainfall characteristics were based on a 30-min time interval and 59-day data. We used the SM020, SM025, SM030, SM035, SM040, and SM045 experiments for the calculation of systematic sensitivity. The blue color indicates an increase in rainfall amount, rainfall frequency, rainfall intensity, and rainfall extremes with soil moistening. The units are mm day −1 per 0.1 increase in soil moisture, % per 0.1 increase in soil moisture, mm h −1 per 0.1 increase in soil moisture, and mm h −1 per 0.1 increase in soil moisture, respectively
