Precipitation observation data of the Qiang-Tang Plateau (2017)

Precipitation observation data of the Qiang-Tang Plateau (2017)

This is the rain gauge precipitation observation data along Bange-Ali line in the Qiang-tang Plateau. It can be used to evaluate and improve the quality of satellite precipitation products, thereby improving the estimation accuracy of precipitation in the Qiangtang Plateau.

The data is observed from June 19, 2016 to September 24, 2017. And a piece of data is recorded every 60 minutes. The original data forms a continuous time series after quality control, and the daily mean index data is obtained through calculation. The original data meets the accuracy requirements of China Meteorological Administration (CMA) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) for meteorological observation. Quality control includes eliminating the systematic error caused by the missing point data and sensor failure. The data is stored as an excel file.
