Daily precipitation data with 10km resolution in the upper Brahmaputra (Yarlung Zangbo River) Basin (1961-2016)

Daily precipitation data was reconstructed for streamflow simulation in the entire UB by combining orographic and linear correction approaches based on 262 gauge observations. The reconstructed precipitation is used to drive the VIC hydrological model linked with a temperature-index model (VIC-Glacier) , and is inversely evaluated by comparing with observed discharge, glacier area changes, and MODIS-based snow cover faction (SCF) data in the upper Brahmaputra Basin.

Data file naming and use method

The data contains 3390 grid files. Each file has four columns, namely year, month, day and precipitation. The file is named data_ Latitude_ Longitude.
