The CHELSA-W5E5 dataset was created to serve as observational climate input data for the impact assessments carried out in phase 3a of the Inter-Sectoral Impact Model Intercomparison Project (ISIMIP3a). Version 1.0 of the CHELSA-W5E5 dataset covers the entire globe at 30 arcsec horizontal and daily temporal resolution from 1979 to 2016. Data sources of CHELSA-W5E5 are version 1.0 of WFDE5 over land merged with ERA5 over the ocean (W5E5; Lange, 2019; Cucchi et al., 2020), the ERA5 global reanalysis (Hersbach et al. 2020) and the Global Multi-resolution Terrain Elevation Data 2010 (GMTED2010; Danielson and Gersch, 2011). Variables (with short names and units in brackets) included in the CHELSA-W5E5 dataset are Daily Mean Precipitation (pr, kg m-2 s-1), Daily Mean Surface Downwelling Shortwave Radiation (rsds, W m-2), Daily Mean Near-Surface Air Temperature (tas, K), Daily Maximum Near Surface Air Temperature (tasmax, K), Daily Minimum Near Surface Air Temperature (tasmin, K), Surface Altitude (orog, m), and the CHELSA-W5E5 land-sea mask (mask, 1).
