Revised dataset of temperature and precipitation in the Greater Naren River Basin (1951-2016)

Precipitation and temperature are essential input variables for hydrological models. There are few meteorological stations in the big Naryn Basin of the Syr Darya, which cannot meet the needs of hydrological simulation. Precipitation data in the Syr Darya were collected through online resources and field research. The precipitation gradient in the study area is obtained. Based on the precipitation gradient, the precipitation and temperature grid products (PGMFD) ( then corrected to get this set of data sets.

The year covered by this data is 1951-2016, the spatial precision is 10km, and the time resolution is daily.

The more detail information about the correction method can be found in (Generation of High Mountain Precipitation and Temperature Data for a Quantitative Assessment of Flow Regime in the Upper Yarkant Basin in the Karakoram, Kan et al., 2018)

Data file naming and use method

The data is stored in txt text, each text is named after the latitude and longitude of the grid point (data_xx_yy), xx is latitude, and yy is longitude. The text content from left to right refers to the year, month, day, precipitation / temperature.
