Description

This data set provides monthly summary climate data at 1-km x 1-km spatial resolution for four Daymet variables; minimum and maximum temperature, precipitation, and vapor pressure. These single month summary data products are produced for each month for individual years and covers the period of record from 1980 to 2015. The monthly climatological summaries are derived from the much larger data set of daily weather parameters (Thornton et al., 2014), produced on a 1-km x 1-km grid over the conterminous United States, Southern Canada, and Mexico as station data inputs allow (Thornton, et al., 2014).

Project

Daymet: Daymet is a collection of gridded estimates of daily weather parameters generated by interpolation and extrapolation from daily meteorological observations. Weather parameters in Daymet include daily surfaces of minimum and maximum temperature, precipitation, humidity, radiation, snow water equivalent, and day length produced on a 1 km x 1 km gridded surface over North America, Puerto Rico, and Hawaii.
