Description
Descriptions
  1. Full: A time series of monthly average climate maps from 1901 - 2014 which describe mean maximum temperature, mean minimum temperature and total precipitation. Data are mapped at 30 arcminute resolution (0.5 degree) and cover the entire extent of the globe. These maps were originally created by the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia
  2. Note: Whenever these climate layers are used in a publication the original data should be cited as: University of East Anglia, Climatic Research Unit (CRU) Time-Series (TS) Version 3.23 of High Resolution Gridded Data of Month-by-month Variation in Climate (Jan. 1901- Dec. 2014). Centre for Environmental Data Analysis, 09 November 2015. DOI for source data citation: http://dx.doi.org/10.5285/4c7fdfa6-f176-4c58-acee-683d5e9d2ed5
