|Grid mode 2|
Grid-mode-2 series are absolute values of temperature, precipitation (amount) and solid precipitation (amount and percentage)
for topography height on a regular grid of 5min grid-distance ranging from 4° to 19°E and from 43° to 46°N.
The temperature dataset was created by merging high resolution climate mean grids (1961-1990) for each month (Hiebl et al. 2009) and longterm monthly station data. To achieve a
similar quality for each of the grids the station data was prolonged to a common beginning in 1780 by using an EOF-method. (Chimani et al.2010).
The grids of total precipitation were calculated by interpolating the already existing monthly precipitation analyses of Eftyhmiadis et al.(2006) onto the same grid as the temperature dataset.
