|Name||APHRODITE Japan precipitation|
Asian Precipitation - Highly-Resolved Observational Data Integration Towards Evaluation (APHRODITE's ) of Water Resources project develops state-of-the-art daily precipitation and temperature datasets with high-resolution grids for Asia. The datasets are created primarily with data obtained from a rain-gauge-observation network.
Product APHRO_JP offers gridded daily precipitation of Japan for 1900-2011.

The latest version data and update data of APHRODITE are released from "http://aphrodite.st.hirosaki-u.ac.jp". : http://aphrodite.st.hirosaki-u.ac.jp
The gridded fields of daily precipitation are defined by interpolating
gauge observations obtained from meteorological stations throughout the region.
Please refer to
for the details of interpolation algorithm and input data.
For long-term change analyses, we provide dataset calculated from constant observation through the analysis period. (DPREC.CSTN)
