A variety of gridded global climate datasets is provided covering different periods within 1951-2000 and based on different data sources (Climatic Research Unit, CRU; Global Precipitation Climatology Center, GPCC).
The datasets are provided as tables of comma separated values (on a common grid with 0.5°x0.5° resolution) as well as resampled georeferenced IDA images and GeoTIFF files (5’x5’ resolution).
