Daymet now available in the Fixed Sites Tool

Fixed Sites Subsets Tool for North America Now Includes Daymet Data

A site within the National Ecological Observatory Network demonstrates that Daymet data can now be accessed using the Fixed Sites Subsets Tool.

For study sites in North America, Daymet daily weather data is now provided alongside pre-processed MODIS and VIIRS data subsets.

Daymet Goodness-of-Fit Statistics for 2017

Daymet station-level cross-validation statistics for year 2016

Station-level cross validation of Daymet at weather station locations showing annual mean absolute error (MAE; degrees C) for the variable maximum temperature (tmax) in 2016.

Daymet provides information to access the accuracy and uncertainty of modeled climate data at each ground station location or two-degree tile.
