Configuration Item ID: 01B-35

The Global Precipitation Climatology Project (GPCP) Daily Precipitation Analysis Climate Data Record (CDR) is a companion to the GPCP Monthly analysis, and provides complete global precipitation estimates with 1° x 1° spatial resolution and a daily time scale from October 1996–present. The dataset is part of the World Climate Research Program (WCRP) and Global Energy and Water Exchanges (GEWEX) activities, and one of an array of datasets describing the water and energy cycles of the planet under the auspices of the GEWEX Data and Assessment Panel (GDAP).
