Southern Asia Daily Rainfall Estimate

Southern Asia Rainfall Estimate

Daily rainfall estimation files have been created for the southern Asia domain (70-110E;5-35N) beginning May 01, 2001. Originally implemented for use with hydrometeorological and agricultural modeling schemes, this product is updated three times daily at around 9am, 1pm, and 9pm Eastern Local Time and covers a 24 hour period of accumulated precipitation. Gridded binary data used to create graphics seen on this page are available either from the NOAA/CPC/FEWS-NET ftp server or via CD. Resolution of rainfall estimates are 0.1 by 0.1 degree and inputs include GTS station data, as well as geostationary infrared cloud top temperature fields and polar orbiting satellite precipitation estimate data from SSM/I and AMSU-B microwave sensors.
