GCIP/EOP Surface: Precipitation NCEP/EMC 1/8deg gridded data (GRIB) Gage-Only 24h accum RFC Oct 2006->


Since 21 Jan 2002, NCEP/CPC has been producing a daily (12Z-12Z) 1/8-degree precipitation analysis using the PRISM/least-squares scheme "inverse distance with PRISM climatology" (John Schaake, NWS/OHD), based on the 7,000-8,000 daily gauges. Beginning Oct 2006, it is being converted into GRIB1 format at EMC operationally and is available via the UCAR codiac system. For further information about the CPC 1/8 degree analysis see the related links listed below. Dimension: 464 x 224 (1,1) point: (124.875W,25.125N) (1,224) point: (124.875W,53N) (464,1) point: (67W,25.125N) (464,224) point: (67W,53N)
