We present a global dataset of atmospheric moisture flows from evaporation to precipitation on 0.5° spatial resolution. We simulated the moisture flows between each pair of cells across the land and oceans between 2008 and 2016 and publish their monthly climatological means. We used a Langrangian moisture tracking scheme forced with ERA5 reanalysis data of 25 atmospheric layers and hourly wind speeds and directions. The resulting dataset is a network that allows users to identify and quantify the sources of rainfall and sinks of evaporation for any area on Earth, from regional to global scales.
