  • This is the 2.1.0.2015p version of the HadISDH land data. The data are provided by the Met Office Hadley Centre. This version spans 1/1/1973 to 31/12/2015. This version extends the 2.0.1.2014p version to the end of 2015 and includes some minor updates users are advised to read the update document in the docs section for full details. The data are monthly gridded (5 degree by 5 degree) and station products are available for temperature and six humidity variables: specific humidity (q), relative humidity (RH), dew point temperature (Td), wet bulb temperature (Tw), vapour pressure (e), dew point depression (DPD). Data are provided in either NetCDF or ASCII format. Uncertainty estimates are provided at the station and gridbox level covering station uncertainty (climatological, homogenisation and measurement uncertainty), gridbox spatial and temporal sampling uncertainty and combined station and sampling uncertainty.

  • This is the 3.0.0.2016p version of the HadISDH land data. The data are provided by the Met Office Hadley Centre. This version spans 1/1/1973 to 31/12/2016. The data are monthly gridded (5 degree by 5 degree) and station products are available for temperature and six humidity variables: specific humidity (q), relative humidity (RH), dew point temperature (Td), wet bulb temperature (Tw), vapour pressure (e), dew point depression (DPD). Data are provided in either NetCDF or ASCII format. This version extends the 2.1.0.2015p version to the end of 2016 and constitutes a major update to HadISDH due to a major update of the source data HadISD. Improvements in this version include increased numbers of stations (~8000) and updated methodologies. Users are advised to read the update document in the docs section for full details. Uncertainty estimates are provided at the station and gridbox level covering station uncertainty (climatological, homogenisation and measurement uncertainty), gridbox spatial and temporal sampling uncertainty and combined station and sampling uncertainty.

  • HadISDH (Integrated Surface Database Humidity) is a monthly 5° by 5° gridded global surface humidity climate monitoring dataset created from in-situ sub-daily synoptic data. The data have been quality controlled and homogenised (land), bias adjusted (marine) and buddy checked (marine). Monthly mean climate anomalies are provided alongside uncertainty estimates, actual values, climatological means and standard deviations for specific humidity, relative humidity, vapour pressure, dew point temperature, wet bulb temperature, dew point depression in addition to the simultaneously observed temperature.
