Service Description: Total Annual precipitation was derived from the WorldClim bio-climatic variable: BIO12. Bio-climatic variables are derived from the monthly temperature and rainfall values in order to generate meaningful variables. These are often used in ecological niche modelling (e.g., BIOCLIM, GARP). The bio-climatic variables represent annual trends (e.g., mean annual temperature, annual precipitation) seasonality (e.g., annual range in temperature and precipitation) and extreme or limiting environment factors (e.g., temperature of the coldest and warmest month, and precipitation of the wet and dry quarters). A quarter is a period of the three months (1/4 of the year).

The WorldClim is a set of global climate layers (climate grids). The data can be used for mapping and spatial modeling in a GIS or with other computer programs.
