United States Climate Reference Network (USCRN) Quality Controlled Datasets

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

USCRN Products are available on public FTP and derived from the USCRN processed data. Available parameters include averages and calculated values for precipitation, air temperature, solar radiation, surface temperature, relative humidity, soil moisture, and soil temperature on varying time scales. Products are available as sub-hourly, daily, hourly, and monthly products. It is the general practice of USCRN to not calculate derived variables if the input data to these calculations are flagged due to quality concerns. These data records are versioned based on the processing methods and algorithms used for the derivations, and data may be updated when final, higher-quality records are delivered manually from the stations. See documentation for more information.

Licence Data represent the best data available at the time of ingest. Raw satellite data is not considered as high a quality of the data downloaded directly from the station. As such, input values to the products may change over time as the higher quality raw data become available from stations' datalogger storage. Please review the documentation for more information.
