These data are the rain gauge time series components of a curated set of historical daily rainfall and streamflow data for a large region spanning the southern Amazonian rainforest and tropical savanna biomes of Brazil.

Data (columns) include: the year, month, and day ("year", "month", "day") of observations; the depth of daily rainfall in mm/day ("value"); a site ID ("site"); and the state within which the rain gauge is located ("state"). Missing values are set to -9999. For each unique site, there exists a corresponding rain gauge location record (see "Rain Gauge Locations for the Brazilian Rainforest-Savanna Transition Zone"); these are identified by the same site ID numbers. Date ranges are different for each site.

Rainfall data were obtained from free, publicly-available historical records from the Brazilian water management agency: Agência Nacional de Águas (ANA).

Additional data package information and contents, including raw data files, documentation of data acquisition and processing, and related programmatic scripts, are available via Figshare:
