This dataset provides the measurement records of the CeilinEx2015 Ceilometer Inter-comparison Experiment (url: http://ceilinex2015.de/) which was held in Deutscher Wetterdienst's Richard-Assmann Meteorological Observatory in Lindenberg, Germany between June 1st and September 15th 2015. Ceilometers are widely applied to determine cloud base heights, moreover they provide aerosol backscatter profiles up to 15km from the ground. Six types of ceilometers were compared (Lufft CHM 15k Nimbus, Lufft CHX 15k Nimbus, Vaisala CL31, Vaisala CL51, Vaisala LD40, Campbell...

HOAPS/GPCC global daily precipitation data record with uncertainty estimates using satellite and gauge based observations (at 1.0° and 2.5°, at 0.5° only Europe)

Marc Schröder, Andreas Becker, Felix Diezsch, Karsten Fennig, Kathrin Graw, Marloes Gutenstein, Rainer Hollman, Anja Niedorf & Markus Ziese
This dataset contains global precipitation observations combined from satellite and rain gauge data over ocean and over land, respectively. It spans the years 1988-2015 and has a spatial resolution of 2.5°×2.5°, 1.0°×1.0°, and 0.5°×0.5° (Europe). Satellite observations are based on SSM/I Level 2 and SSMIS data of the HOAPS 4.0 dataset of CM SAF (DOI: 10.5676/EUM_SAF_CM/HOAPS/V002 ). These data have been extended with observations from the AMSR-E and TMI microwave imager platform. The basic rain...

GPCC Homogenized Precipitation Analysis HOMPRA for Europe Version 1.0 (at 0.5, 1.0, 2.5 °): Homogenized Monthly Land-Surface Precipitation and Precipitation Normals from Rain-Gauges built on GTS-based and Historic Data

Elke Rustemeier, Anja Meyer-Christoffer, Andreas Becker, Peter Finger, Udo Schneider & Markus Ziese
The new Homogenized Precipitation Analysis HOMPRA is focussing on the period 1951-2005 and consists of data from ca. 5,340 stations over europe (with at least 90% complete years of precipitation values). Method for break-point detection: approach of Caussinus and Mestre (Caussinus, Mestre 2004) ; Data correction: multiple linear regression (Mestre 2003).

Fundamental Climate Data Record of SSM/I Brightness Temperatures

Karsten Fennig, Axel Andersson & Marc Schröder
The CM SAF Fundamental Climate Data Record of SSM/I Brightness Temperatures covers the time period from July 1987 to December 2008 including all available data from the six SSM/I radiometers aboard F08, F10, F11, F13, F14, and F15. It provides homogenised and inter-calibrated brightness temperatures in a user friendly data format. SSM/I data are used for a variety of applications, such as analyses of the hydrological cycle and related atmospheric and surface parameters, as well...

Fundamental Climate Data Record of Microwave Imager Radiances, Edition 3

Karsten Fennig, Marc Schröder & Rainer Hollmann
The CM SAF FCDR of Microwave Imager Radiances comprises inter-calibrated brightness temperatures (BTRs) from the SMMR, SSM/I and SSMIS radiometers. It covers the time period from October 1978 to December 2015 including all available data from the SMMR radiometer aboard Nimbus–7, the SSM/I radiometers aboard F08, F10, F11, F13, F14, and F15 and the SSMIS radiometers aboard F16, F17, and F18. It provides homogenised and inter-calibrated BTRs in a user friendly data format. SMMR, SSM/I...
