  • Crop (corn) heat units

    Crop heat units (CHU) are based on a similar principle to growing degree days. CHUs are calculated on a daily basis, using the maximum and minimum temperatures; however, the equation that is used is quite different. The CHU model uses separate calculations for maximum and minimum temperatures....

  • Departure from Average Precipitation

    Departure from Average Precipitation products compute the accumulated precipitation value for a location and subtract the long term average value at that location from it. The long term average value is currently defined as the average amount over the period of 1981 – 2010. If the resultant value...

  • Current precipitation compared to historical distribution

    Current precipitation compared to historical distribution products are created by comparing the accumulated precipitation amounts (mm) for the time period being processed against all available historical information from the same window of time. This comparison will rank the current amount and...

  • Growing Degree Days

    Growing degree days (GDDs) are used to estimate the growth and development of plants and insects during the growing season. Insect and plant development are very dependent on temperature and the daily accumulation of heat. The amount of heat required to move a plant or pest to the next...

  • Accumulated Precipitation

    Accumulated Precipitation represents the amount of total precipitation (solid and/or liquid in mm) which has been recorded over a given period of time. Products are produced for the following period types: Agricultural Year, Growing Season and Winter Season as well as rolling products for 7, 14,...

  • Minimum Temperature

    Minimum Temperature values hold the highest recorded temperature value at each location in degrees Celsius for the given period type and date. Available period types are the previous 24 hours and the previous 7 days from the available date.

  • Percent of Average Precipitation

    Percent of Average Precipitation products compute the accumulated precipitation value for a location and divide it by the long term average value at that location. The long term average value is currently defined as the average amount over the period of 1981 – 2010. Products are produced for the...

  • Drought Impact Lines

    The Drought Impact Lines dataset highlights areas that have been physically impacted by drought. All drought impact lines have a drought impact label inside of them to express the longevity of the impact. The impact lines are classified using impact labels as follows: S – Short-Term, typically...

  • Areas of Drought in Canada

    The Areas of Drought dataset has been created to define and depict the severity, spatial extent, and impacts of drought within Canada except for Nunavut and the Arctic Archipelago. Drought classes in the CDM range from D0 to D4, with D0 indicating abnormally dry conditions, and D1 to D4...
