Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Gridded Daily Precipitation & Temperature Dataset at 5 km resolution for the area of Poland enlarged by the Vistula and Odra basins, for the time period 1951-2013, developed within the CHASE-PL project This high-resolution (5 km) precipitation and temperature dataset CPLFD-GDPT5 was constructed with the purpose of using it for regional- to local-scale earth system modelling, in particular for hydrological modelling and as a reference dataset for climate change impact assessments. A number of geostatistical techniques (kriging with elevation as external drift for temperature; combination of universal and indicator kriging for precipitation) were applied to construct it. Raw input data (daily station-based time series) were acquired from various providers: IMGW-PIB, DWD, ECAD, NOAA-NCDC. Three variables (precipitation, minimum and maximum temperature) are available at three temporal aggregations (daily, monthly and annual). Nine NetCDF files, each for the period 1951-2013, are made available.
