Several precipitation analyses are being produced. One analysis is a quarter degree daily satellite-based analysis using microwave estimates beginning in the late 1990s, designed to better resolve details of variations in the recent period. Another is a five degree monthly analysis beginning in 1900, designed to help evaluate historical changes in oceanic precipitation. In addition, joint work between SCSB and NCDC is done to improve methods for processing and analyzing surface land and sea-surface temperature data. A mix of satellite and in situ data are used in these analyses. This work has produced improved historical temperature analyses, which are used to help evaluate climate change since the 19th century.
