This data was used for the manuscript: Extreme Precipitation Return Levels for Multiple Durations on a Global Scale, GrĂ¼ndemann et al., 2021. This file contains global estimates of extreme precipitation using three extreme value distributions (GEV, POT and MEV) for eight durations (3 hours - 10 days).
