Abstract:
This data set consists of two files containing monthly averaged precipitation rate values. Values are obtained from 5 kinds of satellite estimates (GPI,OPI,SSM/I scattering, SSM/I emission and MSU). The enhanced file also includes blended NCEP/NCAR Reanalysis Precipitation values. The other just includes the satellite estimates. CPC Merged Analysis of Precipitation (CMAP) This data set consists of monthly averaged precipitation rate values (mm/day) for the time period beginning January 1979. The data is 2.5 x 2.5 gridded (144x72) and covers 88.75N to 88.75S and 0E to 357.5 E (eastward). The data range is approximately 0 to 50mm/day. The standard (with out NCEP/NCAR Reanalysis data) version has some missing values. NOAAServer Codes: [POL 88.75 -88.75 180 -180] ; nodateline preview obtain Scientific research.
