Abstract: The average annual cycle of the atmospheric branch of the fundamental global water cycle (FGWC) was studied with remote‐sensing‐based precipitation estimates from the Global Precipitation Climatology Project (GPCP; blended microwave‐infrared‐rain gauge) Version 2 and the Goddard Profiling algorithm (GPROF; passive microwave) Version 6 data sets and overocean evaporation estimates from the Goddard Satellite Surface Turbulent Fluxes Version 2 (passive microwave) data set from 1988 to 2000. Overland evaporation w…
