Precipitation Daily Multi-Network Composite

This Daily Precipitation Composite is one of several precipitation datasets provided for the North American Monsoon Experiment (NAME) 2004. This precipitation composite was formed from several data sources (i.e. Climate Computing Project (CLICOM), Mexican GASIR-CNA Rain Gage Network Data, NAME Supplemental Raingauge Nework [CNA/IMTA], NCDC COOP NWS Cooperative Observer Daily Observations, NCEP/EMC Gage Only Daily Dataset, Northwest Mexico NAME Event Raingage Network (NERN) Daily Data, and the Daily Extract from NAME Precipitation Hourly Multi-Network Composite). Data from these sources were merged and gross limit checked to form this precipitation composite. This composite contains data for over 30000 stations in the NAME 2004 Tier 3 domain.
