This is an element of the Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment (GEWEX) of the World Climate Research program (WCRP). It was established by the WCRP in 1986 with the initial goal of providing monthly mean precipitation data on a 2.5 x 2.5 degree latitude-longitude grid for the period 1986-95. It was recently extended to the year 2000. The GPCP will accomplish this by merging infrared and microwave satellite estimates of precipitation with rain gauge data from more than 30,000 stations. These data sets will be used to validate general circulation and climate models, study the global hydrological cycle and diagnose the variability of the global climate system.
