Hourly meteorological data, such as precipitation, temperature, radiation, wind speed, pressure, relative humidity, cloud cover, etc., are downloaded from WebMET (www.webmet.com) and cleaned. The hourly data cover the period of 1961 to 1990 over the whole US. All the data are prepared in matlab format.
Data_"State_Number"_ORI.mat: original hourly meteorological variables recorded from 1961-1990 for 188 point station over whole US. Data_"State_Number".mat: partial duration data for different locations are extracted due to the consideration of data quality. D: matlab time stamp Ws: Wind speed [m/s] U: Relative humidity [%] Tdew: Dew point temperature [degC] Ta: Dry bulb temperature [degC] Rsw: Global horizontal radiation [W/m^2] Rdir: Diffuse horizontal radiation [W/m^2] Rdif: Diffuse horizontal radiation [W/m^2] Pre: Station pressure [mb] Pr: Hourly precipitation amount [mm] N: Total cloud cover [0-1] "State_Number"_observationsFP_ORI.mat: monthly precipitation and air temperature averaged over 1961-1990 period based on the original data. "State_Number"_observationsFP.mat: monthly precipitation and air temperature averaged over 1961-1990 period based on the 'cleaned' data (i.e., Data_"State_Number".mat). Ta_obs: monthly air temperature averaged over observation period [degC] Pr_obs: monthly precipitation depth averaged over observation period [mm] Ele_obs: elevation for the station [m]
