Description

A data set of 30-year mean monthly surface climate over global land areas, excluding Antarctica. Interpolated from station data to 0.5 degree lat/lon for a range of variables: precipitation, wet-day frequency, mean temperature and diurnal temperature range (from which maximum temperature and and minimum temperature can be determined), vapour pressure, cloud cover, ground-frost frequency.
