Project: Estimated daily precipitation at the 15 ANPP sites: 1980-2010

Project ID: 210425000
Funding Source: LTER V
Abstract:

The principal purpose is to provide daily precipitation at specific sites to assist the study of vegetation response over time. 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.
