dataset : Global Historical Climatology Network - Monthly
Global Historical Climatology Network - MonthlyPublished in 1997. Version Version 2 (temperature), Version 3 (precipitation).
The GHCN-monthly data set provides monthly mean in situ surface air temperature and precipitation data. Data is available for some locations dating back to the 1700s. There is global coverage from 1880 to the present. The data is updated each month with the most recent month's data. Quality controlled and homogeneity adjusted data sets are available. There are 7,280 mean temperature stations and more than 20,000 precipitation stations.
