Climate Rainfall Data Center (CRDC) Rainfall Product Intercomparison Tools
Entry ID: CRDC

[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: The Climate Rainfall Data Center (CRDC) is an experiment designed to assess if
overall data access and usage from NASA data centers can be improved by adding
a layer of service that is discipline specific (rainfall in our case). While
the task of distributing standard rainfall products is left to the NASA data
centers, CRDC is staffed by research personnel with knowledge of the products
and the flexibility to address individual user needs.

The CRDC web site attempts to provide the necessary information, tools, and
expertise to help the user determine which dataset(s) to use for their
particular application. Descriptions of the most common publicly available
rainfall products are provided
(http://rain.atmos.colostate.edu/CRDC/frame_prod.html). Although CRDC does not
provide the actual data, details on where to go to access the data as well as
where to get more information are provided. The Product Intercomparisons
(http://rain.atmos.colostate.edu/CRDC/2frame.html) page provides users the
capability to directly compare rain maps or rainfall time series from most of
the datasets described in the Rainfall Products section.
