Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) shape files were used to determine the spatial extent of each island chain within the USAPI.
The stations found within the USAPI region that are used in the GPCP algorithm are sparse, potentially explaining some of the disagreement in the sensitivity analysis between the PERSIANN-CDR and station precipitation amounts.
These maps highlight the spatial variation in precipitation found within and across the USAPI.
The results of this project were shared with science advisors, partners, and end-users to highlight information about the effects of ENSO rainfall in the USAPI, as well as to view the seasonal maps and time series figures made by the NASA DEVELOP Pacific Water Resources team.
Therefore, the current USAPI region-focused sea level products were discussed.
Each of these stations show the highest skills with 0-season lead; the skill gradually decreases as the season advances and, similar to the USAPI region, this is somewhat expected in the non-USAPI region.
While the USAPI stations displayed an average skill of 0.
These products are currently fully instrumental to enhance the governance capacity to address disasters in the USAPI region.
