Legates Surface and Ship Observations of Precipitation 0.5 x 0.5 degree V1 (RAIN_LEGATES) at GES DISC
Entry ID: RAIN_LEGATES_1


Summary
Abstract: The Legates Surface and Shipboard Rain Gauge Observations data set consists of a global climatology of monthly mean precipitation values. A global climatology of mean monthly precipitation was developed using traditional land-based gauge measurements as well as extrapolations of oceanic precipitation from coastal and island observations. Data were obtained from a variety of source archives. These ... View entire text
