Global Surface Air Temperature and Precipitation, and Long-Period Grid Means, by Legates and Willmott from NCAR
Entry ID: NCAR_LM


Summary
Abstract: These monthly climatology grids were prepared by Legates and Willmott
(1990) and are archived at the National Center for Atmospheric
Research (NCAR). These 0.5 X 0.5 degree latitude/longitude grids
contain measured global monthly precipitation grids, corrected monthly
precipitation, monthly air temperature, and standard errors for
precipitation grids. The input ... View entire text
