Global PMP Datasets in Geotiff format at the 0.5-hr, 1-hr, 2-hr, 3-hr, 6-hr, 12-hr, and 24-hr, are statistically derived based on WMO-NOAA’s endorsed Hershfield PMP estimation technique using IMERG’s 30-min precipitation dataset. The Google Earth Engine’s script for assessing and interacting with the datasets is also provided.
