Short summary
Model output of quantities such as precipitation usually represents integrals, for example sums over 3 h. It is not trivial to interpolate a time series of such integral values to instantaneous precipitation rates conserving the integral values. A piecewise linear reconstruction is presented which fulfils the conservation, is non-negative, and is continuous at interval boundaries. It will be used in the FLEXPART Lagrangian dispersion model but has many other possible applications.
