ABSTRACT:

These files are spatially gridded precipitation of average monthly and annual precipitation for the climatological periods 1971-2000 and 1980-89, Andrews Experimental Forest. The original 1980-89 grids were updated for a greater time span and also the extent of the coverage is increased. Interpolation of point station measurements to a spatial grid was done using the PRISM model, developed by Christopher Daly of the PRISM Group at Oregon State University. PRISM interpolation accounts for the effects of elevation on the spatial patterns of precipitation. Grid resolution is 100 meters. Station data used in the interpolation were obtained from current and historic rain gauge stations within the forest. These grids represent the first significant effort to map climatological precipitation in the Andrews Forest. Further information on PRISM can be found at http://prism.oregonstate.edu/
