Figure 1 : Structure of the MERRAclim dataset.

From: MERRAclim, a high-resolution global dataset of remotely sensed bioclimatic variables for ecological modelling

Figure 1

(a) the temperature-only bioclimatic variables (BIO1-BIO7 & BIO10–11) are provided at 3 resolutions (coloured maps; 2.5 arc-minutes, 5 arc-minutes, 10 arc-minutes). For each resolution, a single dataset is available per decade (white boxes with red label; 1980s, 1990s, 2000s); (b) The humidity-related bioclimatic variables (BIO8–9 & BIO12–19) are provided at 3 resolutions (coloured maps). For each resolution three alternative versions are available (Vmax, Vmean, Vmin) per decade (white boxes with red label).
