Gridded Standardized Precipitation-Evapotranspiration Index (SPEI) using generalised logistic distribution with standard period 1961-2010 for Great Britain [SPEIgenlog61-10]

M. Tanguy, J. Hannaford, L. Barker, C. Svensson, F. Kral & M. Fry
1km and 5km gridded Standardised Precipitation-Evapotranspiration Index (SPEI) data for Great Britain, which is a drought index based on the probability of Climatic Water Balance (CWB) - which is equivalent to the amount of precipitation minus the amount of evapotranspiration - for a given accumulation period as defined by Vicente Serrano et al. (2010). SPEI is calculated for different accumulation periods: 1, 3, 6, 12, 18, 24 months. Each of these is in turn calculated...

Standardised Precipitation Index time series for Integrated Hydrological Units Groups (1961-2012)

M. Tanguy, F. Kral., M. Fry, C. Svensson & J. Hannaford
Standardised Precipitation Index (SPI) data for Integrated Hydrological Units (IHU) groups (Kral et al. [1]). SPI is a drought index based on the probability of precipitation for a given accumulation period as defined by McKee et al. [2]. SPI is calculated for different accumulation periods: 1, 3, 6, 12, 18, 24 months. Each of these is in turn calculated for each of the twelve calendar months. Note that values in monthly (and for longer accumulation...

F.H. Sinclair, G. Stone, S. Cavers & K. Schönrogge
This dataset contains Cynipid gall abundance from an oak provenance trial at Petite Charnie in France. 2400 trees were sampled from 20 provenances of Quercus petraea and Quercus robur in 2008 and 2009. Cynipids have two gall generations each year so trees were sampled in spring (sexual generation) and autumn (asexual generation). 10 twigs were surveyed for galls on all parts of the terminal shoot (buds, leaves, stem, catkins) from each tree in spring and...
