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.
