Distributions of Daily Meteorological Variables

distribution plot

Plot the distribution of daily data for a season using different datasets, seasons, range of years, and locations. You can compare 2 different distributions. You can also input a value to see its probability for the empirical distribution and the SGS assumed distribution.

A subset of GHCN daily station data is available. All stations cover at least 1950-2016. Some stations are available from 1875. See a map of global station coverage for this subset.

Variable: Temperature units: K C F

Station number of GHCN station (1-3890) [list]
Season Start Month Season End Month

OR Enter a subset of years (Optional)

Filename for own time-series (Optional)

Dataset 2 (Optional)

Return the probability of a value for the selected distribution(s) (Optional) . Raw Value:
Plot raw empirical distributions for 2 datasets on a single plot (Optional) : No Yes
Plot a normal distribution on standardized plot(s) (Optional) : No Yes

Output includes:
  • Plotted empirical distribution(s) of standardized values (bar chart)
  • Plotted fitted SGS estimates of standardized values (line plot)
  • Statistics of distribution(s).
  • SGS fit coefficients.
  • NetCDF file(s) with statistics, PDF bins/values, and time-series..
