Zambia. Zambia’s CHIRPS problem. Out of 33 Zambia-Met stations 21 have expected distributions. 12 Zambia-Met stations are wrong note no zeroes, most common values are the highest. The availability of GHCN.v2 monthly data determines the timing of the divergence in the first slide.
Location of CSCD stations around ZambiaLarge green boxes = Good Zambia-Met; Large red boxes = Bad Zambia-Met; black diamonds = GHCN.v2; solid red triangles = GHCN daily; cyan filled triangles = fGTS; open magenta triangles = fGSOD
Will exclude these 12 bad Zambia-Met stations from our next version of CHIRPS.
