In January 2010, the University of East Anglia officially released the CRU-TS 3.0 Climate Database (See the official data release at http://badc.nerc.ac.uk/data/cru). This new version of database covers from 1901 to 2006*, globally at 0.5 degree spatial resolution on land areas. To help facilitate the use of this database in the CSI community using GIS software, we have converted the raw data into the ESRI ASCII raster format.
The database contains following nine variables. Each variable was scaled by the factor described in the table to store as integer.
|dtr||diurnal temperature range||degree Celcius||10|
|frs||frost day frequency||days||100|
|tmp||daily mean temperature||degree Celcius||10|
|tmn||monthly average daily minimum temperature||degree Celcius||10|
|tmx||monthly average daily maximum temperature||degree Celcius||10|
|wet||wet day frequency||days||100|
