Global Precipitation Climatology Project (GPCP) Climate Data Record (CDR), Version 1.3 (Daily)

| DOI: 10.5065/ZGJD-9B02

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).

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.
