Monthly precipitation in mm based on IMERGE 2014-2018 monthly product (ftp://jsimpson.pps.eosdis.nasa.gov/NRTPUB/imerg/gis/ see files e.g. "3B-MO-L.GIS.IMERG.20180601.V05B.tif"). Downscaled to 1 km resolution using gdalwarp (cubic splines) and an average between IMERGE, WorldClim (http://biogeo.ucdavis.edu/data/worldclim/v2.0/) and CHELSA Climate (https://www.wsl.ch/lud/chelsa/data/climatologies/prec/). Antartica is not included.

All files internally compressed using "COMPRESS=DEFLATE" creation option in GDAL. File naming convention:

  • clm = theme: climate,
  • precipitation = variable: precipitation,
  • imerge.oct = determination method: IMERGE long-term average values for October,
  • m = mean value,
  • 1km = spatial resolution / block support: 1 km,
  • s0..0cm = vertical reference: land surface,
  • 2014..2018 = time reference: from 2014 to 2018,
  • v0.1 = version number: 0.1,
