Description

A data set of mean monthly surface climate over global land areas, excluding Antarctica. Interpolated from station data to 0.5 degrees lat/lon for a range of variables: precipitation and wet-day frequency, mean temperature and diurnal temperature range (from which maximum temperature and minimum temperature can be determined), vapour pressure, sunshine, cloud cover, ground-frost frequency and windspeed.
