Format

Data frame(s) with rows representing days and with the following 3 variables.

MOSS

Daily Precipitation at Moss [mm/day]

GEIRANGER

Daily Precipitation at Geiranger [mm/day]

BARKESTAD

Daily Precipitation at Barkestad [mm/day]

Details

The time series in obsprecip stem from the observation-system of the Norwegian Meteorological Institute.

The time series in modprecip are based on simulations of HIRHAM2/NorACIA regional climate model forced with simulation the HadAM3H. The simulation setup is further described in Forland et al. 2011. The simulations are free-running and there is consequently no direct correspondence in the temporal evolution of modprecip and obsprecip.

NOTE that all months in the modelled data (modprecip) have 30 days (in contrast to the observations (obsprecip) which have true calender days.

Source

The observations are taken form the observation network of the Norwegian meteorological institute (www.met.no). The data are available for download at http://eklima.met.no.
