Title MERRAclim. 10m_max_00s
Downloaded 48 times
Description MERRAclim Dataset. 19 global bioclimatic variables from the 2000s decade at 10 arcminutes resolution in GEOtiff format. The humidity version used is the maximum. The variables have been built using the same protocol as WorldClim with data from MERRA. Temperature layers (BIO1-BIO11) are in degree Celsius multiplied by 10, humidity layers (BIO12-BIO19) are in kg of water/kg of air multiplied by 100000.
