GPCC Interpolation Test Dataset at 1.0°

Peter Finger, Markus Ziese, Anja Meyer-Christoffer, Udo Schneider & Andreas Becker
The GPCC Interpolation Test Dataset (ITD) was created to provide "open" precipitation data for users to compare their interpolation results with the GPCC interpolation procedure. Depart from the operational interpolation of anomalies, monthly precipitation totals were interpolated, because the necessary long term means to compute the anomalies could not be provided. As described in Becker et al. (2013; DOI:10.5194/essd-5-71-2013), the interpolation was done at a finer subgrid and subsequent area and land portion weighting. Only...

RS92 GRUAN Data Product Version 2 (RS92-GDP.2)

Michael Sommer, Ruud Dirksen & Franz Immler
This dataset comprises reference radiosoundings performed with the Vaisala RS92. Reference in this case means that: - all known biases are corrected for - best possible vertically resolved uncertainty estimates - well-documented correction algorithms - extensive meta data collection The GCOS (Global Climate Observing System) Reference Upper-Air Network (GRUAN) data processing for the Vaisala RS92 radiosonde was developed to meet the criteria for reference measurements. These criteria stipulate the collection of metadata, the use of...

DecReg/MiKlip gridded fields of near-surface 2m temperature and 10m wind speed for the period 2001-2010

Sven Brinckmann & Peter Bissolli
These gridded fields covering Europe (CORDEX domain) have been prepared within the project DecReg/MiKlip, for the period 2001-2010, in order to generate datasets for decadal climate model validation. The data include monthly and daily mean, maximum and minimum near-surface (2m) temperature, and monthly and daily mean near-surface (10m) wind speed, together with error estimates. Input data for the gridding method are the synoptic station data from the DWD MIRAKEL database, supplemented by further station data...

Surface Solar Radiation Data Set - Heliosat (SARAH) - Edition 1

Homogenized historical German radiosonde measurements (project MOSQUITO/MiKlip)

Margit Pattantyus-Abraham
This homogenized monthly radiosonde data had been prepared within the project MOSQUITO/MiKlip, in order to generate dataset for decadal climate model validation. The data is based on 12 German radiosonde stations. Monthly means are only taken if more than 8 data per month (separately for day-time and night-time soundings) is available. The temporal coverage of the dataset ranges from January 1950 until November 2014.
