Historical Monthly Temperature - 1 km CRU TS

This set of files includes downscaled estimates of monthly mean temperatures (in degrees Celsius, no unit conversion necessary) at 1x1 kilometer spatial resolution. Each file represents a single month in a given year. The original SNAP downscaled temperature product at 2x2 kilometer spatial scale was resampled to a 1x1 kilometers using a bilinear interpolation for input in the Integrated Ecosystem Model (IEM).

2 versions are provided that correspond to different versions of CRU data.
CRU TS 3.1: 1901-2009
CRU TS 4.0: 1901-2015

Each set of files originates from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU, http://www.cru.uea.ac.uk/) TS datasets.
