Nossan at Eggvena (Sweden) Precipitation, temperature, river discharge
Time-series from 1978 to 2012 describing the hydrological variables in the catchment of Nossan at Eggvena (Sweden). The data describes daily values of precipitation, air temperature and river discharge. Precipitation and temperature are derived from ptHBV, a national Swedish database of 4 km grid interpolations for daily precipitation and temperatures (Johansson and Chen, 2003). The daily catchment mean values are area-weighted averages of gridded data. River discharge is derived from river level measurements using a rating curve function.

Original data source: ptHBV gridded data are published under http://luftwebb.smhi.se, discharge data under http://vattenwebb.smhi.se/modelarea (both links in Swedish)

Tools for repurposing: area-weighted averages of gridded precipitation and temperature data
