Short summary
In order to fill the gaps in the in situ meteorological data that is acquired at FLUXNET stations, we develop a method that makes use of the reanalysis ERA-interim, which is available globally and at a high temporal resolution. Because the ERA-interim data are not measured at site level, we bias-correct them. The developed method is applied and evaluated at 153 FLUXNET stations. The final product consists of uninterrupted meteorological records that can be used for running most ecosystem models.
