Daily precipitation for Croatia for year 2008

Description

The daily measurements of precipitation (rain gauges) for year 2008 kindly contributed by the Croatian National Meteorological Service. HRprec08 contains 175,059 measurements of precipitation sums (489 stations by 365 days).

Usage

data(HRprec08)

Format

The HRprec08 data frames contain the following columns:

NAME

name of the meteorological station

Lon

a numeric vector; x-coordiante / longitude in the WGS84 system

Lat

a numeric vector; y-coordinate / latitude in the WGS84 system

DATE

'Date' class vector

PREC

daily cummulative precipitation in mm (precipitation from the day before)

Note

The precipitation estimates in mm (HRprec08) are collected in a bottle within the rain gauge and readings are usually manual by an observer at 7 a.m. The precipitation collected in the morning refer to the precipitation for previous 24 hours. To project coordinates we suggest using the UTM zone 33N system as this coordinate system was used to prepare the gridded predictors.
