Precipitation - GPCP Daily

Sample image of NOAA CDR Precipitation GPCP Daily product; it depicts daily rain fall rates across the globe in millimeters, ranging from zero to fifty.

This dataset provides scientific researchers a high quality Climate Data Record (CDR) of global precipitation, from the Global Precipitation Climatology Project (GPCP).

The GPCP Daily analysis is a companion to the GPCP Monthly analysis, and provides globally complete precipitation estimates at a spatial resolution of one degree latitude-longitude and daily time scale from October 1996 to the present. The data set is part of World Climate Research Program (WCRP) and GEWEX activities, being part of the array of data sets describing the water and energy cycles of the planet under the auspices of the GEWEX Data and Assessment Panel (GDAP).
