AgMIP Climate Forcing Datasets

AgCFSR Climate Forcing Dataset for Agricultural Modeling

This directory contains the AgMIP climate forcing dataset based on NCEP's Climate Forecast System Reanalysis. AgCFSR corrects to gridded temperature and precipitation, incorporates satellite precipitation, and replaces solar radiation with NASA/GEWEX SRB to cover the 1980-2010 period.

For further information and details of the AgMERRA alternative, see the AgMIP Climate Forcing Datasets page and:
