Precipitation - CMORPH

Sample image of NOAA CDR Climate Prediction Center morphing technique (CMORPH) product; it depicts the estimated precipitation rate for September 8th, 2017 across the globe.

This dataset provides scientific researchers a high quality Climate Data Record (CDR) of satellite precipitation estimates across the globe.

These satellite precipitation estimates are reprocessed and bias corrected, to form a CDR of high resolution global precipitation analysis. The bias-corrected CMORPH CDR processing system generates bias-corrected, integrated satellite precipitation estimates over the global domain. Spatial resolution is on an 8km-by-8km grid over the globe (60S–60N) and in a 30-min temporal resolution for a 20-yr period of record, from January 1998 to the present. The production of the output precipitation fields are a combination of three different time-space resolutions to accommodate user requirements of various backgrounds.
