Summary
Abstract: Cort Willmott & Kenji Matsuura of the University of Delaware have
put data together from a large number of stations, both from the GHCN
(Global Historical Climate Network) and, more extensively, from the
archive of Legates & Willmott. The result is a monthly climatology
of precipitation and air temperature, both at the surface, and a time
series, spanning 1950 to 1996, of monthly mean surface air
temperatures, and monthly total precipitation. It is land-only in
coverage, and complements the COADS data set well. For a complete
description of the data as given by the providers and references to
relevant papers please see their web pages: climatologies monthly
