Hourly estimates of climate variables for Greece, 2017-2018

  • 1. Athena Research Center


Raster of hourly estimates of climate variables for Greece, 2017-2018. The estimates, which form the ERA5 Reanalysis data, are based on vast amounts of historical observations. From ECMWF through the Copernicus Climate Change Service. Prepared by Athena Research Center for use in the i4SEA project.

The data was downloaded from ERA5 hourly data on single levels from 1979 to present on May 16, 2019. It covers the years 2017-2018 and a rectangular region encompassing Greece. The climate variables contained are:

  • 10m u-component of wind (10u)
  • 10m v-component of wind (10v)
  • 2m dewpoint temperature (2d)
  • 2m temperature (2t)
  • Mean sea level pressure (msl)
  • Mean wave direction (mwd)
  • Mean wave period (mwp)
  • Sea surface temperature (sst)
  • Significant height of combined wind waves and swell (swh)
  • Surface pressure (sp)
  • Total precipitation (tp)

Generated using Copernicus Climate Change Service information 2019. Neither the European Commission nor ECMWF is responsible for any use that may be made of the Copernicus information or data it contains.
