Abstract

These data are the rain gauge location components of a curated set of historical daily rainfall and streamflow data for a large region spanning the southern Amazonian rainforest and tropical savanna biomes of Brazil.

Rain gauge location attributes include: a site ID ("site"); the state within which the rain gauge is located ("state"); and the elevation in m above sea level ("elevation"). Rainfall gauge locations were obtained from free, publicly-available historical records from the Brazilian water management agency: Agência Nacional de Águas (ANA). Elevation data was obtained from SRTM 90m Digital Elevation Database v4.1.

For each unique site, there exists a corresponding time series record (see "Rain gauge data for the Brazilian rainforest-savanna transition zone"); these are identified by the same site ID numbers.

Additional data package information and contents, including raw data files, documentation of data acquisition and processing, and related programmatic scripts, are available via Figshare: https://doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.3100912.v1
