Short summary
This paper presents a database that is a collection of datasets of gridded 1° × 1° daily precipitation estimates from a variety of sources. It includes observations from in situ networks, satellite-based estimations and outputs from atmospheric reanalysis. All the datasets have been formatted in the same way to ease their manipulation. This database aims at facilitating intercomparisons and validation exercises performed by the scientific community.
