This data set is part of products suite from the CPC Unified Precipitation Project that are underway at NOAA Climate Prediction Center (CPC). The primary goal of the project is to create a suite of unified precipitation products with consistent quantity and improved quality by combining all information sources available at CPC and by taking advantage of the optimal interpolation (OI) objective analysis technique. The gauge analysis here covers the Conteminous United States on a fine-resolution and is quantitatively consistent with that covering the global land on a coarser resolution.
