Jul 1, 2010 (Last modified Jul 2, 2010)
Description:
Average annual precipitation for the globe on a 0.5 X 0.5 degree global grid. Precipitation field represents a long term annual average (mm/yr) computed from monthly modeled precipitation for years 1950-2000. Annual precipitation - long-term annual average precipitation (mm/yr) computed from monthly modeled precipitation derived from Mitchell et al., 2004.

The data is in ESRI GRID raster format.
