Global climate grids


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 0.5x0.5 resolution) as well as resampled georeferenced IDA images and GeoTIFF files (5x5 resolution).
