Observations for


Monthly Climate Analysis

Rainfall time series (1981-2017) and temperature time series (1981-2017) reconstructed from station observations, remote sensing and other proxies. This interface allows users to view rainfall, maximum, minimum and mean temperature monthly climatologies and anomalies.

Dataset Documentation

Reconstructed rainfall and temperature data over land areas on a 0.05˚ x 0.05˚ lat/lon grid. The rainfall time series (Jan 1981 to Aug 2018) were created by combining quality-controlled station observations with satellite rainfall estimates. Minimum and maximum temperature time series (Jan 1981 to May 2018) were generated by combining quality-controlled station observations with downscaled reanalysis product.

How to use this interactive map

Download (TSV) table:from the map fieldset, this will download the full climatological data in time and space according to the chosen resolution (grid box or administrative boundary); from the time series fieldset, this will download only the local climatology in view.
