This project develops state-of-the-art daily precipitation data sets with high-resolution grids for Asia, including the Himalayas, South and South-East Asia and mountainous areas in the Middle East. The data sets are created primarily with data obtained from a rain-gauge-observation network. The data contribute to studies such as the diagnosis of climate changes, evaluation of Asian water resources, statistical downscaling, forecast improvements and verification of numerical model simulation and satellite precipitation estimates. The data are available free of charge and are easy for GrADS and netCDF users to handle.
