Abstract: 

Estimated daily precipitation is calculated for each of 15 aboveground net primary productivity (ANPP) sites located in the 5 dominant vegetation zones on the Jornada Basin.

The 15 sites were formally established in 1989 as LTER Study 268, but these rainfall estimates begin in 1980 using the closest rain gauge that provides a minimum resolution of daily precipitation data. The Methodology section describes this in detail. The rain gauges are detailed inthe file raingauge_picks.csv.
