Description: gridMET is a gridded climate dataset (netcdf format) that covers CONUS. The dataset consists of several primary variables (precipitation, solar radiation, VPD, etc.) with others (ETo, etc.) that are calculated from them. This dataset provides historical climate inputs for models and statistical anlyses, which are useful for a variety of fields of study.
