SGP97 GCIP/NESOB Surface: National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) Miscellaneous Hourly Precipitation Data

Metadata Updated: February 21, 2020

The National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) Miscellaneous Precipitation Dataset is one of several precipitation datasets provided in the Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment (GEWEX) Continental-Scale International Project (GCIP) Near-Surface Observation Data Set (NESOB) 1997. This dataset contains all hourly precipitation data from the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) stations. Stations that reported at standard or incremental times are also included in the various NESOB 1997 precipitation composite datasets. The miscellaneous precipitation dataset contains data from stations in the NESOB 1997 domain (94.5 W to 100.5W longitude and 34N to 39N latitude) and time period (01 April 1997 through 31 March 1998). These data were not quality controlled by the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research/Joint Office for Science Support (UCAR/JOSS). The National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) Miscellaneous Precipitation Dataset contains eight parameters and uses code tables from the Standard Hydrometeorological Exchange Format (SHEF). The eight parameters repeat once for each time period, where the time period is nominally hourly. The Physical Element code field should always contain a PP indicating that the precipitation data is reported as incremental values. Missing values are not reported. Each precipitation value has an associated observation date and time which are UTC times. The algorithms used to form the NCEP Precipitation data are not currently available.
