aemet data


Series of daily summaries of 73 spanish weather stations selected for the period 1980-2009. The dataset contains geographic information of each station and the average for the period 1980-2009 of daily temperature, daily precipitation and daily wind speed.


Elements of aemet:
..$df: Data frame with information of each wheather station:

  • ind: Indicated weather station.

  • name: Station Name. 36 marked UTF-8 strings.

  • province:Province (region) of Spain. 36 marked UTF-8 strings

  • altitude: Altitude of the station (in meters).

  • year.ini: Start year.

  • year.end: End year.

  • longitude: x geographic coordinate of the station (in decimal degrees).

  • latitude: y geographic coordinate of the station (in decimal degrees).

The functional variables:

  • ...$temp: mean curve of the average daily temperature for the period 1980-2009 (in degrees Celsius, marked with UTF-8 string). In leap years temperatures for February 28 and 29 were averaged.

  • ...$wind.speed: mean curve of the average daily wind speed for the period 1980-2009 (in m/s).

  • ...$logprec: mean curve of the log precipitation for the period 1980-2009 (in log mm). Negligible precipitation (less than 1 tenth of mm) is replaced by 0.05 and no precipitation (0.0 mm) is replaced by 0.01. Then the logarithm is applied.
