These data were used in a paper accepted in Ecological Monographs on 17 September 2019, entitled "Spatiotemporal patterns of microbial composition and diversity in precipitation", hereafter Aho et al. (in press). Microbes in the atmosphere have broad ecological impacts, including the potential to trigger precipitation through species and strains that act as ice nucleation particles. To characterize spatiotemporal trends of microbial assemblages in precipitation we sequenced 16S (bacterial) and 18S (fungal) rRNA gene amplicon libraries...
