Summary

animated .GIF illustrating average monthly precipitation values in the Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna Basin (India, Nepal, China (Tibet), Bhutan, Bangladesh, Myanmar)

Precipiation values from 30 arc-second World Clim global data set. Interpolated average precipitation from multiple sources. Data available at wordclim.org

Note: while this file clearly illustrates the range in precipitation due to temporal distribution (monsoon climate) and unique orography of the region (Himalaya), extreme values may appear exaggerated due to limitations of the file format color representation and limitations of the underlying dataset.
