Summary
Abstract: [Source: NASA/GISS, http://data.giss.nasa.gov/precip_cru/ ]

These pages provide access to graphical extracts of land surface precipitation
data for the period 1901-2000. The original data come from the CRU TS 2.0
dataset and are used here courtesy of Dr. T.D. Mitchell of the Tyndall Centre
for Climate Change Research, University of East Anglia, U.K.

The source CRU TS 2.0 dataset comprises 1200 monthly grids of observed climate,
for the period 1901-2000, and covering the global land surface at 0.5° × 0.5°
resolution. There are five climatic variables available: cloud cover, DTR,
precipitation, temperature, vapour pressure. The original data are publicly
available from the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia,
along with guidance for their use and other documentation.
