MSWEP : Multi-Source Weighted-Ensem­ble Pre­cip­i­ta­tion


A new global terres­trial pre­cip­i­ta­tion (P) dataset (1979–2015) with a high 3-hourly temporal and 0.25° spa­tial res­o­lu­tion (Beck et al., 2016). The dataset is unique in that it takes advan­tage of a wide range of data sources, includ­ing gauge, satel­lite, and reanaly­sis data, to obtain the best pos­si­ble P esti­mates at global scale. download data [Australia (THREDDS)Europe (FTP)]
