Spatial distribution of precipitation at meteorological stations in Tibet (unit: mm)"
Error of the gridded products with respect to meteorological observations (unit: mm): (a) APHRO minus observations, (b) GPCC minus observations, (c) UDel minus observations, and (d) CMA minus observations. The pink triangles indicate meteorological stations where the deviation in precipitation was larger than 300 mm"
Distribution of SD from different data sources (unit: mm). (a) observations, (b) APHRO, (c) GPCC, (d) UDel, and (e) CMA"
Distribution of RMSE between gridded products and observations (unit: mm): (a) APHRO, (b) GPCC, (c) UDel, and (d) CMA"
Monthly precipitation in (a) arid and humid sub-areas, in (b) western and (c) eastern Tibet from gridded products and observations during 1980–2013 (1980–2007 for APHRO) (unit: mm)"
Temporal variation in the RE between gridded products and observations during the period 1980–2013 (unit: %)"
Inter-decadal variation of mean RE between gridded products and observations (unit: %)"
