The Precipitation Probability DISTribution (PPDIST) dataset represents a collection of global high-resolution (0.1°) observation-based climatologies (1979–2018) of the occurrence and peak intensity of precipitation at daily and 3-hourly time scales. For more details, please see the following open-access paper:
