GCIP/EAOP-99 Surface: Hourly Precipitation Composite


The Hourly Precipitation Composite was formed from several data sources (i.e., National Climatic Data Center hourly precipitation data, National Centers for Environmental Prediction hourly precipitation, W.K. Kellogg Biological Station (KELLOGG) hourly precipitation, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Climate Monitoring and Diagnostics Laboratory (CMDL) WITN meteorological tower hourly precipitation, South East Michigan Council of Governments (SEMCOG) hourly precipitation, USDA Agricultural Research Service (ARS) NAEW hourly precipitation data (Coshocton), Integrated Flood Observing and Warning System (IFLOWS) hourly precipitation data, and the precipitation data extracted from the GCIP LSA-E EAOP-98 Hourly Surface Composite). Data from these sources were quality controlled and merged to form this precipitation composite.
