Summary

This data release consists of Network Common Data Form (NetCDF) data sets of daily total-precipitation and minimum and maximum air temperatures for the time period from January 1, 1895 to December 31, 1915. These data sets are based on individual station data obtained for 153 National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) weather stations in Florida and parts of Georgia, Alabama, and South Carolina (available at http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/cdo-web/results). Weather station data were used to produce a total of 23,007 daily raster surfaces (7,669 daily raster surfaces for each of the 3 data sets) using a thin-plate-spline method of interpolation. The geographic extent of the weather station data coincides with the geographic extent [...]

Purpose

This data set was produced to serve as input to a modified Thornthwaite-Mather soil-water balance (SWB) model of the southeastern United States. Output from the SWB (potential groundwater recharge and agricultural irrigation demand) is ultimately intended to serve as input for a MODFLOW groundwater model to support the U.S. Geological Survey Water Availability and Use Science Program regional groundwater availability study of the Floridan aquifer system (http://fl.water.usgs.gov/floridan/ and http://water.usgs.gov/ogw/gwrp/activities/gw-avail.html).
