Summary: This dataset is formed by a reduced number of predictors (both at surface and at pressure levels) commonly used for Statistical Downscaling (SD). This information has been prepared by the Santander MetGroup as part of the work done in the statistical downscaling portal (http://www.meteo.unican.es/downscaling), and is distributed in the framework of different international initiatives (such as CORDEX-ESD and VALUE) in order to have a standard predictor dataset and to facilitate the work of the contributing downscaling groups. This information has been downloaded from the ECMWF's MARS, degraded to a common 2 degrees grid and post-processed in several ways (e.g. computing daily means based on the original 6 hourly fields when required). Therefore, this dataset is a degraded and subset of the original ERA-Interim reanalysis dataset, which is freely available via ECMWF servers at original resolution (http://www.ecmwf.int/en/research/climate-reanalysis/era-interim).
Source: Data downloaded from ECMWF servers at original resolution (http://www.ecmwf.int/en/research/climate-reanalysis/era-interim) on 15/06/2015 and stored in the User Data Gateway (UDG) of the Santander MetGroup climate services (http://meteo.unican.es/en/dataservices).
