Percent of Average Precipitation products compute the accumulated precipitation value for a location and divide it by the long term average value at that location. The long term average value is currently defined as the average amount over the period of 1981 – 2010.

Products are produced for the following period types: Agricultural Year, Growing Season and Winter Season as well as rolling products for 30, 60, 90, 180, 270, 365, 730, 1095, 1460 and 1825 days.

Departure from Average Precipitation products compute the accumulated precipitation value for a location and subtract the long term average value at that location from it. The long term average value is currently defined as the average amount over the period of 1981 – 2010. If the resultant value is negative it indicates that the location has received less than the usual amount of precipitation for that timeframe by the amount given in mm; conversely, a positive amount shows that the location has seen more than the usual amount of precipitation.

Products are produced for the following period types: Agricultural Year, Growing Season and Winter Season as well as rolling products for 30, 60, 90, 180, 270, 365, 730, 1095, 1460 and 1825 days.

Precipitation percentile products are created by comparing the accumulated precipitation amounts (mm) for the time period being processed against all available historical information from the same window of time. This comparison will rank the current amount and assign it a percentile value determined by where it falls against the historic record.

Products are produced for the following period types: Agricultural Year, Growing Season and Winter Season.

The Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI) is a widely used index to characterize meteorological drought on a range of timescales. The SPI can be compared across regions with markedly different climates. It quantifies observed precipitation as a standardized departure from a selected probability distribution function that models the raw precipitation data. The raw precipitation data are typically fitted to a gamma or a Pearson Type III distribution, and then transformed to a normal distribution.

The Standardized Precipitation Evapotranspiration Index (SPEI) takes into account both precipitation and potential evapotranspiration (PET) and the resultant index is mostly used to highlight water deficits and droughts but can also show excesses. Thus, unlike the SPI, the SPEI captures the main impact of increased temperatures on water demand. Like the SPI, the SPEI can be calculated on a range of timescales from 1-60 months..

Dry spell periods are defined as a count of the number of days within the date range where daily precipitation was less than 0.5 mm.

Consecutive days below 0.5 mm is a count of the number of days, starting from the date of the product and going back in time, since there has been a day with precipitation of at least 0.5 mm. This is not an accumulation of precipitation, simply a count of days.

Dry spell products are only produced during the Growing Season, April 1 through October 31.

The Blended Index (BI) is a model which employs multiple potential indicators of drought and excess moisture (such as Palmer values, rolling precipitation amounts and soil moisture to name a few) and combines them into a weighted, normalized value between 0 and 100.The inputs and weights used in this model are subject to change from time to time as it is optimized to best represent extent, duration and severity of impactful weather conditions.

The Duck Lake (Saskatchewan) Geolysimeter precipitation intercomparison data are from a co-located precipitation gauge and deep groundwater observation well. The data published here are event based intercomparisons, collected between 2010 and 2016, binned into rain and snow events. Snowfall data observed by the precipitation gauge have been adjusted for wind bias using the SPICE (Solid Precipitation InterComparison Experiment) transfer functions (Kochendorfer et al., 2017a) and included for intercomparison. The data is described by Smith et al.
