China regional surface meteorological feature dataset

China regional surface meteorological elements drive datasets includes seven elements: the near-surface temperature, near-surface pressure, near-surface air specific humidity,near-ground wind, ground-downward shortwave radiation, the ground-downward longwave radiation, ground precipitation rate. Data  format: for the time resolution of 3 hours, the horizontal spatial resolution of the data of 0.1. Used for providing China's land surface process simulation data, and high-resolution near-surface reanalysis data.

The data set is based on existing data, such as Princeton reanalysed data,the GLDAS materials, GEWEX-SRB radiation data, as well as the TRMM precipitation data, integrated with regular meteorological observations by China Meteorological Administration. see references for detailed processes.

Original data from the Bureau of Meteorology observation data, analyzed data and satellite remote sensing data.
Non-physical scope value has been remocved, using the ANU-Spline statistical interpolation.
Accuracy between that of the Bureau of Meteorology observation data and the satellite remote sensing data. better than the international existing raster data accuracy.
 Disclaimer: Although we have done our best efforts to control and improve the error of the input data, we do not make guarantee for the accuracy and reliability of the data product. Disclaimer for the data provider includes, but not limited to the following aspects: the reliability of data quality, data performance in use, and applicability of data for special-purpose study.

The main application areas: hydrology and climate modeling, and other related areas
Data has been used in the land surface process simulation,data assimilation and land surface parameters inversion, users from the domestic (Institute of Tibetan Plateau Research CAS, Cold and Arid Regions Environmental and Engineering Research Institute CAS, Institute of Remote Sensing Applications CAS, Tsinghua University), and from abroad (University of Tokyo, Japan, the University of Bayreuth, Germany ).
