Daily rainfall estimation files have been created for the central Asia domain (20-95E;10-60N) beginning February 21, 2002. Originally implemented for use with hydrometeorological and agricultural modeling schemes, this product covers a 24 hour period of accumulated precipitation. Gridded binary data used to create graphics seen on this page are available either from the NOAA/CPC/FEWS-NET ftp server or via CD. Resolution of rainfall estimates are 0.1 by 0.1 degree and inputs include GTS station data, as well as geostationary infrared cloud top temperature fields and polar orbiting satellite precipitation estimate data from SSM/I and AMSU-B microwave sensors.
