  • The gridded CRU TS (time-series) 3.22 data are month-by-month variations in climate over the period 1901-2013, on high-resolution (0.5x0.5 degree) grids, produced by the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia. CRU TS 3.22 variables are cloud cover, diurnal temperature range, frost day frequency, PET, precipitation, daily mean temperature, monthly average daily maximum and minimum temperature, vapour pressure and wet day frequency for the period Jan. 1901 - Dec. 2013. CRU TS 3.22 data were produced using the same methodology as for the 3.21 datasets. In addition to updating the dataset with 2013 data, the v3.22 release corrects an error in the v3.21 dataset. This is summarised in the document, CRU_Advisory_v3.2x_NE_Africa.txt, and affects PRE and WET variables only. There are several known issues with the current dataset which cannot be resolved in the timeframe of this release; they will be addressed in the future. This directory also contains an advisory note regarding an issue with 35 Mozambique stations that were new. After an investigation by the CRU, the comparison plots show that the only countries affected in a possibly significant way are Egypt and Eritrea. The details of these can be found in this directory. The CRU TS 3.22 data are monthly gridded fields based on monthly observational data, which are calculated from daily or sub-daily data by National Meteorological Services and other external agents. The ASCII and netcdf data files both contain monthly mean values for the various parameters. All CRU TS output files are actual values - NOT anomalies. CRU TS data are available for download to all CEDA users. The CEDA Web Processing Service (WPS) may be used to extract a subset of the data (please see link to WPS below).

  • The gridded CRU TS (time-series) 3.00 data are month-by-month variations in climate over the period 1901-2006, on high-resolution (0.5x0.5 degree) grids, produced by the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia. The CRU TS 3.00 variables include cloud cover, diurnal temperature range, frost day frequency, precipitation, daily mean temperature, monthly average daily maximum/min temperature, vapour pressure and wet day frequency. The BADC holds the preliminary CRU TS3.00 datasets for the period 1901-2006. Note that these data are yearly files REGARDLESS of whether the data exists for the full year. In CRU TS3.00, the data up to 06/2006 *ONLY* has been used. The CRU TS 3.00 data are monthly gridded fields based on monthly observational data, which are calculated from daily or sub-daily data by National Meteorological Services and other external agents. The ASCII and netcdf data files both contain monthly mean values for the various parameters. All CRU TS output files are actual values - NOT anomalies. CRU TS data are available for download to all CEDA users.

  • The gridded Climatic Research Unit (CRU) TS (time-series) 3.21 datasets are month-by-month variations in climate over the period 1901-2012, on high-resolution (0.5 x 0.5 degree) grids, produced by the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia. CRU TS 3.21 variables are cloud cover, diurnal temperature range, frost day frequency, PET, precipitation, daily mean temperature, monthly average daily maximum and minimum temperature, vapour pressure and wet day frequency for the period Jan. 1901 - Dec. 2012. CRU TS 3.21 data were produced using the same methodology as for the 3.20 datasets. In addition to updating the dataset with 2012 data, the v3.21 release corrects two errors in the v3.20 dataset. Please see the release notes in the docs section, which contain details of the errors. This directory also contains an advisory note regarding an issue with 35 Mozambique stations that were new. After an investigation by the CRU, the comparison plots show that the only countries affected in a possibly significant way are Egypt and Eritrea. The details of these can be found in this directory. The CRU TS 3.21 data are monthly gridded fields based on monthly observational data, which are calculated from daily or sub-daily data by National Meteorological Services and other external agents.

CRU TS data are available for download to all CEDA users.

  • The gridded CRU TS (time-series) 3.10 data are month-by-month variations in climate over the period 1901-2009, on high-resolution (0.5x0.5 degree) grids, produced by the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia. CRU TS 3.10 includes variables such as cloud cover, diurnal temperature range, PET, daily mean temperature, monthly average daily minimun/maximum temperature, and vapour pressure for the period 1901-2009. Note that a corrected run of precipitation data, based on the v3.10 precipitation station data are available (e.g cru_ts_3_10_01.1901.2009.pre.dat). CRU provided the BADC with software to generate the CRU datasets in 2010, and this was used to produce CRU TS 3.10 at the BADC in early 2011. CRU TS 3.10 data were produced using the same methodology as for the 3.00 dataset. The main differences is that the 3.10 dataset extends from 1901-2009, and all of the data in this period can now be used. Slight differences may be noticed between the results for a given time/location between the 3.00 and 3.10 versions, due to additional data now being available. CRU have examined the 3.10 dataset in detail and are confident that such differences are not significant. The CRU TS 3.10 data are monthly gridded fields based on monthly observational data, which are calculated from daily or sub-daily data by National Meteorological Services and other external agents. The ASCII and netcdf data files both contain monthly mean values for the various parameters. All CRU TS output files are actual values - NOT anomalies. CRU TS data are available for download to all CEDA users.
