UKCP09: Average data sets

5 km gridded data

Gridded data sets of the long-term averages for at least one of the 1961-1990, 1971-2000 and 1981-2010 climate baselines are available for all the monthly and annual variables. These have been calculated by simply averaging or summing the 30 monthly or annual gridded data sets for each variable. The data sets are provided as space-delimited text files.

25 km gridded data

Monthly long-term averages for the 1961-1990 climate baseline are also available for the 25 x 25 km grid boxes of the HadRM3 regional climate model. They have been produced for all the monthly variables, apart from mean wind speed, days of sleet/snow falling, and days of snow lying, for which data start after 1961. Each 25 x 25 km grid box value is an average of the 5 x 5 km grid cell values that fall within it. The data sets are provided in netCDF format and as space-delimited text files.

Regional values

Long-term averages for at least one of the 1961-1990, 1971-2000 and 1981-2010 climate baselines are also available for 14 administrative regions and 23 river basins. Each regional value is an average of the 5 x 5 km grid cell values that fall within it. The data sets are provided as space-delimited text files.
