The monthly climatology dataset covers January 2001 to December 2018 as was created for the unveiling of the Global Precipitation Missions's (GPM) newly redesigned website

This data visualization cycles throught the monthly precipitation rates throughout the year. (The colorbar and dates are not included in this version in case an editor wants to include their own graphical overlays.)

Date overlay match framed to the above data visualization to re-create the topmost example visualization if desired.

Colorbar for average monthly precipitation rates shown in millimeters per hour. Cool colors (ie, blue and green) are areas that receive low amounts of precipitation for a given month. Warmer colors (yellow, orange, and red) receive higher amounts of precipitation for the given month.
