The key difference with all other existing precipitation databases is the high-resolution of the available data, since the inherent 0.05° resolution is a rather unique threshold. Monthly data for the period from January 1999 to December 2012 were processed in the present research. The main aim of this article is to propose a novel downscaling method in order to attain high resolution (1 km × 1 km) precipitation datasets, by correlating the CHIRPS dataset with altitude information and the normalized difference vegetation index from satellite images at 1 km × 1 km, utilizing artificial neural network models. The final result was validated with precipitation measurements from the rain gauge network of the Cyprus Department of Meteorology.||ISSN:||1366-5901||DOI:||10.1080/01431161.2017.1312031||Rights:||© Taylor & Francis||Type:||Article||Affiliation :||National Observatory of Athens
