UCSB CHIRPS Version 1.8 Precipitation Analyses
Monthly and dekadal (~10-day) precipitation analyses for the globe at 0.05 degree spatial resolution, and daily precipitation analyses for Africa at 0.05 and 0.25 degree resolution from Version 1.8 of the Climate Hazards Group InfraRed Precipitation with Station data (CHIRPS) dataset developed at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) are now available in the Data Library.
PRECL Gauge-Based Global Land Area Monthly Precipitation Analyses at 0.5 and 1.0 Degree Resolution
The 0.5 and 1.0 degree lat/lon resolution versions of the U.S. Climate Prediction Center’s PRECL analysis (v1.0) of gauge-based monthly precipitation observations are now available in the Data Library, joining the previously-available 2.5 degree resolution dataset. Number of gauges per grid box is available in addition to the precipitation variable.
NASA GPCP 1-Degree Daily Combination, Version 1.2
Daily precipitation estimates from the NASA GPCP 1-Degree Daily Combination, Version 1.2 dataset are now available in the Data Library. Updates become available on a monthly basis; the latest values lag the present date by about 2-3 months.
