Extreme precipitation dataset of Weihe River Basin (1961-2016) was developed based on the daily precipitation data from 1961 to 2016 at 25 meteorological data collection stations, integrating with the data reprocessing and the linear trend method. This dataset includes: (1) Geo-location of data collection stations; (2) nine index data related to extreme precipitation, they are PRCPTOT, CWD, SDII, R10mm, R25mm, RX1day, RX5day, R95PTOT andR99PTOT; (3) mutation year of extreme precipitation index. The dataset is archived in .shp and .xlsx data format, and consists of 8 data files with 55.5 KB (compressed to one single file with 39.0 KB). The analysis paper based on the dataset was published at Scientia Geographica Sinica, Vol. 40, No. 5, 2020.Browse
