Global Precipitation Climatology Project V2.3 Precipitation

Global Precipitation Climatology Project monthly precipitation dataset from 1979 to present combines precipitation data from ground and satellite observations into 2.5 degree x 2.5 degree global grids. The dataset gives both monthly values from January 1979 through March 2017, and long term monthly means derived from years 1981 through 2010. 

The work is being carried out as part of the Global Precipitation Climatology Project, an international project of the WMO/WCRP/GEWEX designed to provide improved long-record estimates of precipitation over the globe.
