Short summary
The Global Precipitation Climatology Centre (GPCC) operated by Deutscher Wetterdienst since 1989 provides reliable information on monthly and daily precipitatation since 1901 and 1988, respectively. The information is provided as DOI referenced data sets and we provide herewith an overview and orientation which product is most suitable for a number of archetype use cases. We also provide some illustration on particular use cases. The GPCC data product will be further upgraded and prolongued.
