Global TempSIM - Java Tool to Predict Maximum and Minimum Daily Air Temperatures for Any Location on the Globe
Entry ID: USDA_ARS_Global_TempSIM

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The purpose of Global TempSIM tool is to estimate daily maximum and minimum air temperatures for a yearly cycle at any location on the globe. Global TempSIM predicts the daily average air temperature based upon 30-yr (1961 – 1990) temperature records that were compiled and interpolated by Legates and Willmott (1990a and 1990b) with further improvements by Willmott and Matsuura (1995) (data located at http://climate.geog.udel.edu/~climate/). Diurnal temperature ranges (TDTR) were interpolated from monthly averages from data collected 1961-1990 and cross-validated by New, et al. (1999). (Data located at: http://ipcc-ddc.cru.uea.ac.uk/ddc_visualisation.html).
