  • The CRU CY version 3.24.01 dataset consists of ten climate variables for country averages at a monthly, seasonal and annual frequency; including cloud cover, diurnal temperature range, frost day frequency, precipitation, daily mean temperature, monthly average daily maximum and minimum temperature, vapour pressure and potential evapotranspiration. This dataset was produced in 2016 by the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia and replaces the withdrawn CRU CY 3.24. The data are available as text files with the extension '.per' and can be opened by most text editors. Spatial averages are calculated using area-weighted means. CRU CY3.24.01 is derived directly from the CRU TS3.24.01 dataset. CRU CY version 3.24.01 spans the period 1901-2015 for 289 countries. To understand the CRU-CY3.24.01 dataset, it is important to understand the construction and limitations of the underlying dataset, CRU TS3.24.01. It is therefore recommended that all users read the Harris et al, 2014 paper listed in the online documentation on this record. CRU CY data are available for download to all CEDA users.

  • The Climatic Research Unit (CRU) Country (CY) data version 4.00 dataset consists of ten climate variables for country averages at a monthly, seasonal and annual frequency; including cloud cover, diurnal temperature range, frost day frequency, precipitation, daily mean temperature, monthly average daily maximum and minimum temperature, vapour pressure and potential evapotranspiration.

  • The gridded CRU TS (time-series) 3.26 data are month-by-month variations in climate over the period 1901-2017, on high-resolution (0.5x0.5 degree) grids, produced by the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia. This version of CRU TS supersedes version 3.25, additionally however these data are superseded by the CRU TS 4.02 data which has a new processing methodology. This concurrent release of CRU TS 3.26 and CRU TS 4.02 is made to support users during the transition to the CRU TS version 4 data. No further releases of version 3 are planned. CRU TS 3.26 variables are cloud cover, diurnal temperature range, frost day frequency, PET, precipitation, daily mean temperature, monthly average daily maximum and minimum temperature, and vapour pressure for the period Jan. 1901 - Dec. 2017. CRU TS 3.26 data were produced using the same methodology as for the 3.21, 3.22, 3.23, 3.24.01, 3.26 datasets. This version contains updates the dataset with 2016 data, some new stations have been added for TMP and PRE only. This release is the latest release of the CRU TS data. Known issues predating this release remain. The CRU TS 3.26 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.

  • The gridded Climatic Research Unit (CRU) Time-series (TS) data version 4.02 data are month-by-month variations in climate over the period 1901-2017, provided on high-resolution (0.5x0.5 degree) grids, produced by CRU at the University of East Anglia. The CRU TS4.02 variables are cloud cover, diurnal temperature range, frost day frequency, potential evapotranspiration (PET), precipitation, daily mean temperature, monthly average daily maximum and minimum temperature, and vapour pressure for the period January 1901 - December 2017. The CRU TS4.02 data were produced using angular-distance weighting (ADW) interpolation. All version 3 releases used triangulation routines in IDL. Please see the release notes for full details of this version update. CRU TS4.02 is a full release, differing only in methodology from the parallel release, v3.26. Both are released concurrently to support comparative evaluations between these two versions, however, this will be the last release of version 3. The CRU TS4.02 data are monthly gridded fields based on monthly observational data 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. The NetCDF versions contain an additional integer variable, ’stn’, which provides, for each datum in the main variable, a count (between 0 and 8) of the number of stations used in that interpolation. The missing value code for 'stn' is -999. All CRU TS output files are actual values - NOT anomalies.
