The DWD has released a new version 4 of the GPCC Monitoring product, that is now on ICDC:
Based on the recent update of GPCC's Global Precipitation Climatology (V. 2011) with focus on the period 1951-2000 based on climatological normals of ca. 67,200 stations a new version of the Monitoring Product (Version 4) has been recalculated for the period since January 2007.
For details of the new Global Precipitation Climatology and the other GPCC analysis products go to the new product description: Schneider et al. (2011): Global Precipitation Analysis Products of the GPCC.
