Title: Historical climate data (1940-2006) for the conterminous United States at the 5 arc minute grid spatial scale based on PRISM climatology

Author: Coulson, David P.; Joyce, Linda A.

Description: Monthly totals of precipitation in millimeters (mm), monthly means of daily maximum air temperature in degrees Celsius (C), and monthly means of daily minimum air temperature (C) were developed at the 5 arc minute grid level for the conterminous United States (US) for the 1940-2006 period. Also, included are computed monthly mean of daily potential evapotranspiration (mm) and mean grid elevation in meters (m). These data were developed from PRISM (Parameterelevation Regressions on Independent Slopes Model) data at the 2.5 arc minute scale and aggregated to the 5 arc minute grid scale.

Keywords: RPA assessment, climate scenario, historical temperature, historical precipitation, historical PET estimates
