How much, where and when does it rain over land?

The use of the global SM2RAIN-ASCAT rainfall dataset allowed us to investigate the rainfall spatial-temporal variability over the globe. In the figure below, we show the monthly timeseries and the monthly seasonality – on a global scale and over different regions – obtained with SM2RAIN-ASCAT dataset. We also compared our dataset with other global-scale precipitation datasets (GPCC, CPC, ERA-Interim).
