Data sets

High-spatial-resolution monthly precipitation dataset over China during 1901–2017 S. Peng

High-spatial-resolution monthly temperatures dataset over China during 1901–2017 S. Peng

Short summary
This study describes a 1 km monthly minimum, maximum, and mean temperatures and precipitation dataset for the mainland area of China during 1901–2017. It is the first dataset developed with such a high spatiotemporal resolution over such a long time period for China. The dataset is well evaluated by the observations using 496 national weather stations, and the evaluation indicated the dataset is sufficiently reliable for use in investigation of climate change across China.
