Abstract: The Jaeger Surface Rain Gauge Observations data set consists of gridded
mean monthly global precipitation values for 1931 to 1960 over the
continents and 1955 to 1965 over the oceans. The data set volume is 126
Kbytes and is available by ftp.

In order to calculate monthly, seasonal, and annual variations of
precipitation over the whole globe, both hemispheres, and various
meridional zones, a ... View entire text
