Description

PERSIANN-CDR is a daily quasi-global precipitation product that spans the period from 1983-01-01 to present. The data is produced quarterly, with a typical lag of three months. The product is developed by the Center for Hydrometeorology and Remote Sensing at the University of California, Irvine (UC-IRVINE/CHRS) using Gridded Satellite (GridSat-B1) IR data that are derived from merging ISCCP B1 IR data, along with GPCP version 2.2.
