This dataset contains ensemble means and standard deviations
computed for daily temperature minimum and maximum, daily mean
temperature and the difference between the daily minimum and maximum
for 3,905 global land stations. Both smoothed and unsmoothed means
and standard deviations are computed using data from the period
January, 1979 through June, 1989.
Data is also available on a 2.5 degree latitude-longitude grid.
Fields available on these grids include monthly mean daily minimum,
maximum and mean temperature and the temperature difference. Annual
mean daily minimum, maximum and mean temperatures are also available
on the 2.5 degree grid. Several other statistical quantities are
also available on this grid.
Please see NCAR technical report titled "The Annual Variation of
Surface Temperature over the World" for more information about the
data available in this dataset.
