Timeseries

The CHELSA timeseries data is a monthly dataset of precipitation, maximum-, minimum-, and mean temperatures at 30 arc sec resolution for the earths land surface areas. There are separate files for each month starting January 1979 – December 2013. For temperatures also air temperature over the oceans is included.
