and anomaly (bottom) (mm) using the Special Sensor
Microwave/Imager (SSM/I) precipitation index (Ferraro 1997, J.
Geophys. Res., 102, 16715-16735). Contour interval for means
(anomalies) is 100 (50) mm. Anomalies are computed from the July 1987 -
June 2004 base period means. Anomalies have been smoothed for display
