Data Set: ISLSCP II Global Precipitation Climatology Project Version 1, Pentad PrecipitationData Set: ISLSCP II Global Precipitation Climatology Project Version 1, Pentad Precipitation
The Global Precipitation Climatology Project (GPCP) pentad version 1 precipitation data set includes global precipitation rates for 5-day, or pentad, periods. The data sets are derived from measured rain gauge data and merged with satellite estimates of rainfall. This is a portion of the version 1 GPCP pentad data set and covers the ISLSCP II period from 1986 to 1995. The original precipitation rates at 2.5 degrees were re-gridded to a 1 degree spatial resolution by the ISLSCP II staff.
