Level of service update: High Mountain Asia TRMM-derived 3B42 Extreme Precipitation Indices

The High Mountain Asia TRMM-derived 3B42 Extreme Precipitation Indices, Version 1 data set has been updated from a basic to a standard level of service at the NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC). More extensive documentation and support options are now available. Please see our Adding clarity to NSIDC data support with new Level of Service (LoS) model article for more information.
 
This data set features seven standard annual mean extreme precipitation indices 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, and are provided from 50º N to 50º S at a spatial resolution of 0.25º x 0.25º.
