What We'll Give You
Participants will have access to the following data sets
Merged Land-Ocean Global Surface Temperature - NOAA
Spatially gridded (5° × 5°) global surface temperature dataset, with monthly resolution from January 1880 to present. We combine a global sea surface (water) temperature (SST) dataset with a global land surface air temperature dataset into this merged dataset of both the Earth’s land and ocean surface temperatures, currently as version v4.0.1.
Air Temperature & Precipitation - University of Delaware
Monthly global gridded high-resolution station (land) data for air temperature and precipitation from 1901-2014. 0.5-degree resolution.
GISS Surface Temperature Analysis (GISTEMP) - NASA
Gridded Monthly Maps of Temperature Anomaly Data, 2-degree resolution
Gridded daily min/max temperatures - Met Office Hadley Centre
HadGHCND is a gridded daily temperature dataset based upon near-surface maximum (TX) and minimum (TN) temperature observations. It is designed primarily for the analysis of climate extremes and also for climate model evaluation. It spans the years 1950 to present and is available on a 2.5° latitude by 3.75° longitude grid.
Surface temperature - NOAA/ESRL/PSD
GISS Surface Temperature Analysis: Monthly anomalies for surface air temp and combined SST/air temp, 2-degree resolution.
CMAP Precipitation - NOAA
Monthly and pentad global gridded precipitation means. It includes a standard and enhanced version (with NCEP Reanalysis) from 1979 to near the present. 2.5-degree resolution
Infectious Disease Outbreak Reports - ProMED-mail
52,000+ infectious disease reports spanning 1994 - 2016. Reports detail location of outbreak, time stamp of report, pathogen implicated in outbreak event, and message body. Reports are linked so multiple reports chronicling one outbreak event are listed in chronological order.
ATSDR Social Vulnerability Index - CDC and Prevention
A measure of a community's ability to respond to health challenges, such as infectious disease outbreaks. Index measures curated using US Census data.
