GPCP Monthly Analysis (GPCP-Interim)--Latest Month
Interim GPCP estimates are provisional estimates of GPCP available ~10 days after the end of the month. They can be used for the most recent months for which GPCP is unavailable.
(Due to the issues of AIRS microwave data, GPCP CDR product since Sep. 2016 is delayed)
