Abstract

QUEST projects both used and produced an immense variety of global data sets that needed to be shared efficiently between the project teams. These global synthesis data sets are also a key part of QUEST's legacy, providing a powerful way of communicating the results of QUEST among and beyond the UK Earth System research community.

This dataset contains 30 year surface meteorology climatologies from CRU TS3.0 data. Data includes parameters such as temperature, water vapour and precipitation.

Process overview

This dataset was generated by the computation detailed below.
Title CRU TS3.0
Abstract The CRU TS3.0 data are monthly gridded fields based on daily values -hence the ASCII and netcdf files both contain monthly mean values for the various parameters.
