ERA5 is a 5th generation 30+ year global climate reanalysis dataset which combines model data with observations from across the world into a globally complete and consistent dataset. This dataset provides atmospheric, land, and oceanic climate variables which can be used for a variety of applications.
Mean Temperature: Daily mean air temperature at 2m height
Minimum Temperature: Daily minimum air temperature at 2m height
Maximum Temperature: Daily maximum air temperature at 2m height
Dew Point Temperature: Daily mean dew point temperature at 2m height
Precipitation: Daily total precipitation (depth)
Sea Level Pressure: Daily atmospheric pressure adjusted to mean sea level (kPa).
Wind Speed: Daily mean wind speed at 10m height
Eastward Wind Component: Horizontal component of air moving towards the east
Northward Wind Component: Horizontal component of air moving towards the north
