NAME: Precipitation Hourly Multi-Network Composite


This Hourly Precipitation Composite is one of several precipitation datasets provided for the North American Monsoon Experiment (NAME) 2004. This precipitation composite was formed from several data sources (i.e. Army Range Dugway Proving Grounds (DPG) Precipitation Data, Army Range Ft. Huachuca Proving Grounds (EPG) Precipitation Data, Army Range White Sands Missile Range (WSMR) Precipitation Data, Army Range Yuma Proving Ground (YPG) Precipitation Data, Mesonet Arizona Maricopa County ALERT Precipitation Network, Arizona Meteorological Network (AZMET) Precipitation Data, Mesonet Arizona Mohave County ALERT Precipitation Data, Mesonet Arizona Pima County ALERT Precipitation Data, Mesonet Arizona Yavapai County ALERT Precipitation Data, NOAA/NWS ALERT Network Precipitation Data [Jamison], Mesonet FSL MADIS Precipitation Data [NCAR/EOL], Mesonet LDM Surface METAR Precipitation Data, Mesonet New Mexico State University Precipitation Data, Mexican Navy SEMAR R/V Altair Meteorological and Navigational Parameters Precipitation Data, Mexico Agriculture Automated Weather Station Precipitation Data (Sonora), Mexico Navy SEMAR Automated Weather Station Precipitation Data, Mexico SMN-CNA Automated Weather Station Precipitation Data, NCAR Integrated Sounding System (ISS) Precipitation Data [NCAR/EOL], NCDC RecRainga Hourly Precipitation, NCEP/EMC U.S. Gage-only Hourly Precipitation Data [NCAR/EOL], NOAA/AL NAME Supersite (Obispo) Meteorological Precipitation Data, El Puma Mexico Navy Research Vessel (R/V), and the Northwest Mexico NAME Event Raingage Network (NERN) Hourly Data). Data from these sources were gross limit checked and merged to form this precipitation composite. This composite contains data for the NAME 2004 Tier 3 domain.
