Reference evapotranspiration - AgERA5 derived (Global - Daily - ~10km)

Reference evapotranspiration per day with a spatial resolution of 0.1 degree. Unit: mm day-1. The dataset contains daily values for global land areas, excluding Antarctica, since 1979. The dataset has been prepared according to the FAO Penman - Monteith method as described in FAO Irrigation and Drainage Paper 56.

The input variables are part of the Agrometeorological indicators dataset produced by the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) through the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S).

The Agrometeorological indicators dataset provides daily surface meteorological data for the period from 1979 to present as input for agriculture and agro-ecological studies. This dataset is based on the hourly ECMWF ERA5 data at surface level and is referred to as AgERA5. References: https://doi.org/10.24381/cds.6c68c9bb

The Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) aims to combine observations of the climate system with the latest science to develop authoritative, quality-assured information about the past, current and future states of the climate in Europe and worldwide. ECMWF operates the Copernicus Climate Change Service on behalf of the European Union and will bring together expertise from across Europe to deliver the service.

Data lineage:

Copernicus Agrometeorological data were aggregated to daily time steps at the local time zone and corrected towards a finer topography at a 0.1° spatial resolution. The correction to the 0.1° grid was realized by applying grid and variable-specific regression equations to the ERA5 dataset interpolated at 0.1° grid. The equations were trained on ECMWF's operational high-resolution atmospheric model (HRES) at a 0.1° resolution. This way the data is tuned to the finer topography, finer land use pattern and finer land-sea delineation of the ECMWF HRES model.

Resource constraints:

  • The dataset contains modified Copernicus Climate Change Service information [1979-to date];

  • Neither the European Commission nor ECMWF is responsible for any use that may be made of the Copernicus information or data it contains.

purpose
The Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) provides key indicators on climate change drivers to support European adaptation and mitigation policies in several sectors. The variables provided in the Agrometeorological indicators dataset match the input needs of most agriculture and agro-ecological models.
