Overview

This data set features seven standard annual mean extreme precipitation indices: Rx1day, Rx5day, CWD, R10mm, R20mm, R95pTOT, and R99pTOT. They were selected on the basis of potential relevance to landslide activity from the 27 indices established by the joint CCl/CLIVAR/JCOMM Expert Team (ET) on Climate Change Detection and Indices (ETCCDI). The seven indices were calculated from 3B42 version 7 daily satellite precipitation estimates.
