Explanation:
Daily precipitation graphics are produced using the CPC MORPHing technique (CMORPH) on a global basis from 60oN-60oS. Data resolution is approximately 8km and the 24-hour product is a resultant accumulation of 30 minute segments. Data inputs include half-hourly geostationary satellite infrared temperature fields along with irregular-interval polar orbiting satellite microwave brightness temperature retrievals. The morphing process involves using the relatively poor temporal resolution microwave precipitation estimate data and interpolating its movement between retrieval periods.
