* When authors make use of data they should cite both the data set and the scientific publication, if available. Such a practice gives credit to data set producers and advances principles of transparency and reproducibility. Please visit the data citations page for details. Users who would like to choose to format the citation(s) for this dataset using a myriad of alternate styles can copy the DOI number and paste it into Crosscite's website.

The data are available as global grids in GeoTIFF (.tif), Esri Grid (.adf), and netCDF-4 (.nc) formats. Each downloadable object is a compressed zip file, containing the formatted grids plus documentation. The projection gridded zip files range from ~32 to 51 MB in size while the Base Year and Ancillary Layer files are generally less than 5 MB.
