The Global Historical Climatology Network Precipitation Dataset: Version 3
Scheduled for release in 2015, version 3 will have three major enhancements. The first enhancement will be to the station network itself, which will increase in size by at least a factor of three (i.e., to over 75,000 stations) due to the inclusion of dozens of new source datasets, most notably GHCN-Daily. The second enhancement will be to the operational processing system, which will consist of over 25 new quality assurance reviews leveraged off of GHCN-Daily and other existing operational systems. The third enhancement will be to the monthly gridded fields, which will have higher spatial resolution and other new monitoring-driven functionality.
