GPCC Full Data Daily Version 1.0: Daily Land-Surface Precipitation from Rain Gauges built on GTS based and Historic Data

| DOI: 10.5065/D6V69GRT

This dataset contains the Global Precipitation Climatology Centre (GPCC) Full Data Daily Product of daily global land-surface precipitation based on data provided by national meteorological and hydrological services, global and regional data collections as well as WMO GTS data. This product contains the daily totals on a regular grid with a spatial resolution of 1.0 degree by 1.0 degree latitude by longitude. Relative precipitation anomalies at the stations are interpolated by means of ordinary block kriging and then superimposed on the GPCC Full Data Reanalysis Version 7. The temporal coverage of the dataset ranges from January 1988 until December 2013.

This GPCC product is recommended to be used when the daily precipitation information is of highest importance, e.g. for analyses of extreme events and related statistics at daily resolution.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
