Precipitation (Hourly) Multi-Network Composite [NCAR/EOL]

Summary

The Hourly Precipitation Composite was formed from several data sources (i.e., National Climatic Data Center hourly precipitation data, National Centers for Environmental Prediction/Environmental Modeling Center (NCEP/EMC) hourly precipitation data, and the precipitation data extracted from the IHOP_2002 Mesonet: Hourly Surface Meteorological Composite). Data from these sources were quality controlled and merged to form this precipitation composite. In July 2005 the Oklahoma Climatological Survey reprocessed and updated the Oklahoma Mesonet surface meteorological data. EOL has not updated the composite files, however the newer OKMESO data is available.
