GCIP/LSA-NW 99 Surface: Daily Precipitation Composite


The Daily Precipitation Composite was formed from several data sources (i.e., National Centers for Environmental Prediction daily precipitation, National Weather Service Cooperative Observers daily precipitation data, North Dakota Atmospheric Resource Board (NDARB) daily precipitation data, Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) National Water and Climate Center SNOpack TELemetry (SNOTEL) daily precipitation data, and the daily precipitation data extracted from the GCIP LSA-NW EAOP-99 Hourly Precipitation Composite). Data from these sources were quality controlled and merged to form this precipitation composite.
