CHIRPS v. 2.0 Released Today

canvasToday the UCSB team released a major update to the CHIRPS precip product that people may be familiar with from Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) hazard (drought/flood) warning applications.  While v. 1.8 featured global data at pentadal resolution, this update expands the daily resolution dataset from SSA to global availability.  While you’re there, check out their Early Warning Explorer (EWX), code snippets you can embed to produce summary stat plots and precip visualizations.  Unfortunately WP prohibits JavaScript embeds, so all I can offer is a snapshot example (above) of their output.
