Description

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
