FIGURE E5. Areal estimates of monthly mean precipitation amounts (mm, solid lines) and precipitation percentiles (%, bars) for the most recent 13 months obtained from a merge of raingauge observations and satellite-derived precipitation estimates (Janowiak and Xie 1999, J. Climate, 12, 33353342). The monthly precipitation climatology (mm, dashed lines) is from the 19792000 base period monthly means. Monthly percentiles are not shown if the monthly mean is less than 5 mm.
