Processed for gridding daily temperature and precipitation v2012
This dataset contains quality checked and processed daily maximum and minimum temperature and total precipitation data for all viable Canadian stations that report these observations. The processing includes inspection and adjustment using quality control procedures customized for gridding purposes Hutchinson, 2009 , and correction for different definition of climatological day at principal and ordinary climate stations Hopkinson, 2011 . It is used by ANUSPLIN McKenney, 2011 to produce daily grids and in other applications that involve interpolated data.
