Short summary
We derive a new global 0.05 degree precipitation climatology using satellite data, topography and climate normals via moving window regression. The resulting global 0.05° monthly precipitation climatology, the Climate Hazards Group’s Precipitation Climatology version 1 (CHPclim v.1.0, http://dx.doi.org/10.15780/G2159X), is shown to compare favorably with similar global climatology products, especially in areas with complex terrain and low station densities.
