Legates and Willmott Air Temperature and Precipitation Project datasets, AfricaEntry ID: NBId0037_101
Abstract: Africa monthly Corrected Precipitation, Standard Error Precipitation, Air Temperature and Measured Precipitation datasets are part of Legates and Willmott average monthly air temperature and precipitation project produced by The World Data Center-A (WDC-A) for Solid Earth Geophysics, operated by the U.S. National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC). The datasets are part of the World Data Bank II that ... is provided on a diskette called The Global Change Data Base. The Data Bank II is part of a larger project called "Global Ecosystems Database Project." This is based on cooperation between the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), NGDC and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The National Center for Geographic Information and Analyses (NCGIA) in Santa Barbara, California joined
the project to assist with training and evaluation.
A scale was chosen that corresponded closely with the resolution of global AVHRR coverage. It was chosen to provide compatibility with other scales. All data are provided in geographic (longitude/latitude) projection. The dataset is accompanied by an ASCII documentation file which contains information necessary for use of the dataset in a GIS or other software.
