Entry ID: gov.noaa.ncdc.C00005


Summary
Abstract: This dataset replaces the previous Time Bias Corrected Divisional Temperature-Precipitation Drought Index. The new divisional data set (nCLIMDIV) is based on the Global Historical Climatological Network-Daily (GHCN-D) and makes use of several improvements to the previous data set. For the input data, improvements include additional station networks, quality assurance reviews and temperature bias ... View entire text

Purpose: The U.S. Climate Divisional Dataset is the only long-term temporally and spatially complete dataset from 1895 to the present for the Contiguous United States (CONUS) from NCEI. The dataset provides temperature, precipitation and drought indices, as well as heating and cooling degree days. Coverage is provided for U.S. climate divisions, states, multi-state regions, and the nation. Text output, and static and interactive graphs are available.
