Observational studies of the mean conditions and variations of the atmosphere, ocean, and
biosphere, including El Niño and the El Niño / Southern
The Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) estimates span April 2014 through February 2017, and are gridded at 0.1-degree latitude-longitude resolution. Measurements continue and lag real-time by 5 or so months. The product is called the Integrated Multi-satellitE Retrievals for GPM (IMERG) and it is derived from passive microwave measurements.
Plot the boreal winters for the three years of the record. The year to year variability is significant in the northern Indian Ocean region of interest.
