Northern Hemisphere EASE-Grid Annual Freezing and Thawing Indices, 1901 - 2002
Entry ID: GGD649

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set contains annual freezing and thawing indices for each year from 1901 to 2002 on the 25 km resolution Equal-Area Scalable Earth Grid (EASE-Grid). Annual freezing and thawing indices are defined as the cumulative number of degree-days when air temperatures are below and above 0 degrees C. The values were calculated based upon the monthly mean air temperature from the 1901-2002, 0.5 ... View entire text
