IMPORTANT NOTE: A more recent version of this data release is available from this link. This data release is the update of the U.S. Geological Survey - ScienceBase data release by Bera and Over (2016), with the processed data through September 30, 2015. The primary data for each year is downloaded from the ANL website (http://gonzalo.er.anl.gov/ANLMET/numeric/) and is processed following the guidelines documented in Over and others (2010) and Bera (2014). Hourly potential evapotranspiration computed using the computer program LXPET (Lamoreux Potential Evapotranspiration). Murphy (2005) describes in detail the computer program LXPET.

This data release is the update of the U.S. Geological Survey - ScienceBase data release by Bera and Over (2018), with the data processed through September 30, 2018. The primary data for water year 2018 (a water year is the 12-month period, October 1 through September 30, designated by the calendar year in which it ends) were downloaded from the Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) (Argonne National Laboratory, 2018) and processed following the guidelines documented in Over and others (2010). Daily potential evapotranspiration (PET) is computed from average daily air temperature, average daily dewpoint temperature, daily total wind speed, and daily total solar radiation, and disaggregated to hourly PET by using the...

The North American Regional Climate Change Assessment Program (NARCCAP) is an international program to produce high resolution climate change simulations in order to investigate uncertainties in regional scale projections of future climate and generate climate change scenarios for use in impacts research. NARCCAP modelers are running a set of regional climate models (RCMs) driven by a set of atmosphere-ocean general circulation models (AOGCMs) over a domain covering the conterminous United States and most of Canada. The AOGCMs have been forced with the SRES A2 emissions scenario for the 21st century. Simulations with these models were also produced for the current (historical) period. The RCMs are nested within...
ARGN14.WDM contains nine data series: air temperature in degrees Fahrenheit (dsn 400), dewpoint temperature in degrees Fahrenheit (dsn 500), wind speed in miles per hour (dsn 300), solar radiation in Langleys (dsn 600), computed potential evapotranspiration in thousandths of an inch (dsn 200), and four flags data series for air temperature (dsn 410), dewpoint temperature (dsn 510), wind speed (dsn 310) and solar radiation (dsn 610) respectively from January 1,1948, to September 30, 2015. The primary source of the data is the Argonne National Laboratory, Illinois.

The text file "PET.txt" contains hourly potential evapotranspiration (PET) data in thousandths of an inch from January 1, 1948, to September 30, 2017. Daily PET in thousandths of an inch is computed from average daily air temperature in degrees Fahrenheit (°F), average daily dewpoint temperature in degrees Fahrenheit (°F), daily total wind movement in miles (mi), and daily total solar radiation in Langleys per day (Lg/d) and disaggregated to hourly PET in thousandths of an inch using the Fortran program LXPET (Murphy, 2005). The primary source of the data is Argonne National Laboratory (Argonne National Laboratory, 2017) and is processed following the guidelines documented in Over and others (2010). References...
ARGN16.WDM contains nine data series: air temperature in degrees Fahrenheit (dsn 400), dewpoint temperature in degrees Fahrenheit (dsn 500), wind speed in miles per hour (dsn 300), solar radiation in Langleys (dsn 600), computed potential evapotranspiration in thousandths of an inch (dsn 200), and four data-source flag series for air temperature (dsn 410), dewpoint temperature (dsn 510), wind speed (dsn 310) and solar radiation (dsn 610) respectively from January 1,1948, to September 30, 2016.
