AFRICAN GRIDS

  • FEWS-NET/MFEWS/AFN: Gridded estimates of accumulated precipitation for Africa. Daily data are available from 1998 to present at a resolution of 0.1º. Data prior to 1998 are likely to be available in next months. Dekadal data and other products are also available. http://www.cpc.noaa.gov/products/fews/data.shtml

GLOBAL STATIONS NETWORKS

  • GSN: The GCOS Surface Network (GSN) is a global network of approximately 1000 stations selected from the network of many thousands of existing meteorological stations. The GSN is intended to comprise the best possible set of land stations with a spacing of 2.5 to 5 degrees of latitude, thereby allowing coarse-mesh horizontal analyses for some basic parameters (primarily Temperature and Precipitation). http://gosic.org/gcos/GSN-data-access.htm

GLOBAL GRIDS

  • GPCP (http://precip.gsfc.nasa.gov/): The Global Precipitation Climatology Project is directed by the Laboratory for Atmospheres NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and includes worldwide monthly and daily precipitation products:
    • Global Monthly Merged Precipitation Analyses of GPCP ( 1979-present).
    • Global Daily Merged Precipitation Analyses of the GPCP (1997-present).
  • GPCC: The Global Precipitation Climatology Centre provides global monthly precipitation for monitoring and research. These data are available from 1950 to present at two resolutions, 1º and 0.5º. The centre is a German contribution to the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) and to the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS). http://www.esrl.noaa.gov/psd/data/gridded/data.gpcc.html
  • GHCN (Precipitation) Global and Historical Climatology Network. Monthly gridded precipitation anomalies. Theses anomalies are estimated respect to the climatology of the reference period 1961-1990. The temporal coverage of the grid is 1900-present and its resolution is of 5º in latitude and longitude. http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/oa/climate/research/ghcn/ghcngrid-prcp.html
  • GHCN (Temperature) Global and Historical Climatology Network. Monthly gridded mean temperature anomalies. Theses anomalies are estimated respect to the climatology of the reference period 1971-2000. The temporal coverage of the grid is 1880-present and its resolution is of 5º in latitude and longitude. http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/oa/climate/research/ghcn/ghcngrid.html
