UMRBPP > Upper Missouri River Basin Pilot Project
The Climate Prediction Center (CPC), a component of the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) acquires gage-based precipitation reports in near real-time from several thousand sites across the contiguous 48 states of the USA. There are approximately 5,800 daily rain gage reports per day out of a total available set of 9,000. These daily precipitation reports are collected by the 12 River Forecast Centers (RFC) and sent to NCEP. This data set contains the NCEP Daily Precipitation Gage Data. This data set is provided as is and was not quality controlled by UCAR/JOSS.
