Daily observations in 1km*1km grid

Interpolation

Daily weather station observations have been interpolated into 1km*1km grid using external predictors (e.g., elevation) as covariates (kriging with external drift KED).

Reference: New gridded daily climatology of Finland: Permutation-based uncertainty estimates and temporal trends in climate by Juha Aalto, Pentti Pirinen & Kirsti Jylhä; JGR Atmospheres 07 Apr 2016 (https://agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/2015JD024651)

1 km * 1 km grid / Finland

Content

Horizontal resolution 1.0 km.

Projection: epsg:3067 (ETRS89 / TM35FIN(E,N) – Finland)

Data

Daily data is in annual netcdf files. The files are produced by R:s Raster package.

Data will be updated once a year until Jan 2022 and after 8.2.2022 once a month (day number 8 each month)

 

Globrad Global radiation sum kJ/m2  
Psea Sea level air pressure hPa  
RRday Daily precipitation sum mm Value for today: From 06 UTC today to 06UTC tomorrow
Rh Relative humidity % Daily mean 00UTC, 03UTC,…, 18UTC, 21UTC
Snow Snow depth cm Snow depth at 06 UTC
Tday Daily mean temp. Daily mean 00UTC, 03UTC,…, 18UTC, 21UTC
Tmax Daily maximum temp. Value for today: max from 06 UTC today to 06UTC tomorrow
Tmin Daily minimum temp Value for today: min from 06 UTC today to 06UTC tomorrow
Tgmin Min temp near ground Value for today: min from 18 UTC yesterday to 06UTC today.

Accessing the Data on AWS

The data is uploaded into an AWS S3 Bucket:

  • fmi-gridded-obs-daily-1km

Files are named with a convention (using all lower case letters):

<measurand>_<year>.nc

For example:

  • globrad_1998.nc

  • rh_2011.nc

The data is stored with the following prefixes:

Netcdf/<measurand>/

For example the file that contains the interpolated snow depth values for the year 1985 has the key Netcdf/Snow/snow_1985.nc

Content of the bucket can be browsed here:
