EDO Maximum Temperature Anomaly (version 1.0.0)

Collection: DROUGHT : Drought Observatories datasets 

Description

Anomalies of maximum daily temperature are computed based on the interpolated maximum temperature data per day from 1981 and up to and including 2010. The temperature results are being used to compute heat- and cold waves and moments of potentially dangerous temperatures for human beings.
