U.K. Met Office Hadley Centre Global Sub-Daily Station Observations (HadISD)

| DOI: 10.5065/PH2G-6C29

The Hadley Centre at the U.K. Met Office has created a global sub-daily dataset of several station-observed climatological variables which is derived from and is a subset of the NCDC's Integrated Surface Database. Stations were selected for inclusion into the dataset based on length of the data reporting period and the frequency with which observations were reported. The data were then passed through a suite of automated quality-control tests to remove bad data. See the HadISD web page for more details and access to previous versions of the dataset.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
