Historical Monthly Temperature Products - 10 min CRU TS 3.22

This set of files includes downscaled historical estimates of monthly temperature (in degrees Celsius, no unit conversion necessary) from 1901 - 2013 (CRU TS 3.22) at 10 min x 10 min spatial resolution.

The downscaling process utilizes CRU CL v. 2.1 climatological datasets from 1961-1990.
