GHCN (Global Historical Climatology Network) Related Gridded Products

Long time series of gridded surface temperature and precipitation data derived from homongenized station data. The gridded anomalies were produced from GHCN-M bias corrected data. GHCN data and CAMS (Climate Anomaly Monitoring System) are combined to produce a high resolution 'real-time' product.

Key Strengths:

  • Station data derived using sophisticated statistical methodology.
