30 year (1981 - 2010) annual average of daily intensity of precipitation for a rain event for the Conterminous United States and District of Columbia

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

This metadata record describes the average daily precipitation intensity for rain events during the 30-year period 1981 – 2010 for the conterminous United States. A rain event is defined as a period when the number of consecutive days with precipitation equals or exceeds 1 millimeter. Daily precipitation intensity is defined as the amount of precipitation over the duration of a rain event divided by the number of days in a rain event. The source data was produced and acquired from DAYMET (2018) and is presented here as a 1-kilometer resolution GeoTIFF file.
