China Meteorological Assimilation Datasets for the SWAT model - Soil Temperature Version 1.0

CMADS(The China Meteorological Assimilation Driving Datasets for the SWAT model) uses the high spatiotemporal resolution land-surface atmospheric driving data of the CLDAS produced by the National Meteorological Information Center of China Meteorological Administration (temporal resolution: 1 h; spatial resolution: 1/16°×1/16° and approximately 6.25 km; time scale: 2009-2013; elements: atmospheric temperature, pressure, specific humidity, wind speed, precipitation and shortwave solar radiation) to drive the CLM3.5 to conduct a numerical simulation of the land surface. The process is repeated 10 times to spin up the CLM model. A basically stable initial field of the model is generated to obtain a high temporal-spatial resolution soil temperature dataset. In addition, the bilinear interpolation method is used to interpolate the soil temperature grid data of the CLM output. The CMADS was constructed using quality control, loop nesting and resampling.

The CMADS-ST covers the whole East Asia (0°N-65°N, 60°E-160°E), Spatial resolution of the CMADS-ST V1.0 is 1/3°, CMADS-ST V1.1: 1/4°, CMADS-ST V1.2: 1/8° and CMADS-ST V1.3: 1/16°, The CMADS time scale is 2009-2013 years. This page is the CMADS-ST V1.0 version dataset (Spatial resolution:1/3°. Time resolution: Daily. Space coverage: East Asia (0°N-65°N,60°E-160°E). Site number: 58500. Providing elements: Daily average soil temperature of 10 layers (First Layer: 0.00710063521m, Second Layer: 0.0279249996m, Third Layer: 0.0622585751m, Fourth Layer: 0.118865065m, Fifth Layer: 0.2121934m, Sixth Layer: 0.3660658m, Seventh Layer: 0.619758487m, Eighth Layer: 1.03802705m, Ninth Layer: 1.72763526m, Tenth Layer: 2.8646071m).
