Gridded data are available for a range of variables in NetCDF and GeoTiff formats. The NetCDF datasets are arranged in annual blocks where each file contains all of the grids for the selected year and variable. The GeoTiff datasets are not arranged in blocks; each file contains a single grid for the selected day (or month in the case of monthly rainfall) and variable.
SILO's gridded datasets are hosted on Amazon Web Services under the AWS Public Data Program.
Each annual NetCDF file (for daily variables) is approximately 410 MB in size. The annual NetCDF files for monthly rainfall are smaller (14 MB) because they only contain 12 monthly grids, instead of 365 or 366 daily grids.
