  • This is the HadISDH blend 1.1.1.2020f version of the Met Office Hadley Centre Integrated Surface Dataset of Humidity (HadISDH). HadISDH-blend is a near-global gridded monthly mean surface humidity climate monitoring product. It is created from in situ observations of air temperature and dew point temperature from ships and weather stations. The observations have been quality controlled and homogenised / bias adjusted. Uncertainty estimates for observation issues and gridbox sampling are provided (see data quality statement section below). These data are provided by the Met Office Hadley Centre. This version spans 1/1/1973 to 31/12/2020. The data are monthly gridded (5 degree by 5 degree) fields. 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). This version extends the 1.0.0.2019f version to the end of 2020. It combines HadISDH.land.4.3.1.2020f and HadISDH.marine.1.1.0.2020f and therefore their respective update notes.

  • This is the 4.2.0.2019f version of the HadISDH (Integrated Surface Database Humidity) land data. These data are provided by the Met Office Hadley Centre. This version spans 1/1/1973 to 31/12/2019. The data are monthly gridded (5 degree by 5 degree) fields. 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 4.1.0.2018f version to the end of 2019 and constitutes a minor update to HadISDH due to changing some of the code base from IDL to Python 3 and detecting and fixing various bugs in the process. These have led to small changes in regional and global average values and coverage. All other processing steps for HadISDH remain identical. Users are advised to read the update document in the Docs section for full details. As in previous years, the annual scrape of NOAA’s Integrated Surface Dataset for HadISD.3.1.0.2019f, which is the basis of HadISDH.land, has pulled through some historical changes to stations. This, and the additional year of data, results in small changes to station selection. There has been an issue with data for April 2015 whereby it is missing for most of the globe. This will hopefully be resolved by next year’s update. The homogeneity adjustments differ slightly due to sensitivity to the addition and loss of stations, historical changes to stations previously included and the additional 12 months of data.
