Summary
HadEX is a global land-based climate extremes dataset produced through the coordination of the joint WMO CCl/CLIVAR Expert Team on Climate Change Detection, Monitoring and Indices (ETCCDMI). It comprises of 27 indices of temperature and precipitation on a 2.5deg x 3.75deg grid from 1951 to 2003. The indices represent seasonal and/or annual values derived from daily station data. Data are calculated using RClimDex/FClimDex software; developed and maintained on behalf of the ETCCDMI by the Climate Research Branch of the Meteorological Service of Canada (http://cccma.geos.uvic.ca/ETCCDMI/)
