Abstract:
The Surface Reference Data Center (SRDC) was established in 1987 to support the Global Precipitation Climatology Project (GPCP) which is a subprogram of the Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment (GEWEX). The SRDC dataset was originally at the National Climatic Data Center and has been recently relocated to the Environmental Verification and Analysis Center (EVAC) at the University of Oklahoma. The data is broken up into two files. The first file is a 2.5 X 2.5 degree monthly gridded product for the Pacific Atoll. Included with this dataset are Signal to Noise Ratio and Standard Error Estimates data. This data may be downloaded from the SRDC Web site. The second dataset is a 1 x 1 degree daily gridded product for Oklahoma, USA. This data was collected by the Oklahoma mesonet network. [Summary adapted from the SRDC Home Page]
