Abstract

This dataset consists of homogenised time series of daily temperature observations for meteorological stations throughout Europe and the Mediterranean. The version of the dataset described here is a homogenised version of the ECA&D (European Climate Assessment & Dataset) daily dataset, produced with funding from the EU Horizon2020 EUSTACE (EU Surface Temperature for All Corners of Earth) project.

The data is available directly from the ECA&D website and is referenced here to form part of the EUSTACE collection of data. The EUSTACE version of the product is that labelled 'Homogenized ECA Dataset'. This dataset will continue to be updated by the ECA&D project beyond the end of EUSTACE.

Data is available for non-commercial purposes under the ECA&D terms and conditions (see https://www.ecad.eu//documents/ECAD_datapolicy.pdf).
