Arkin and Janowiak GPI: IR -Based Monthly Rainfall for the GPCP 2.5 x 2.5 degree V1 (RAIN_ARKIN) at GES DISC

Version 1
  • Abstract
    The Arkin and Janowiak GPI (GOES Precipitation Index) is the infrared-based monthly rainfall estimate produced for the GPCP (Global Precipitation Climatology Project). The infrared observations from geostationary satellites (GOES, GMS, Meteosat) are used to produce these monthly mean rainfall totals on a 2.5 deg by 2.5 deg grid from 40 N to 40 S for the period Jan 1986 to Dec 1995.
