New Climate Data for East Asia

1 post / 0 new is pleased to
announce the availability of new climate data (TMYx) for more than 1050
locations in East Asia for the following countries:

? China, including Hong Kong and Macau (listed separately)

? Taiwan

? North Korea

? South Korea

? Japan

This completes Asia in the TMYx data set ? leaving portions of Europe, US
and Canada. TMYx are derived from the ISD (US NOAA's Integrated Surface
Database) with hourly data through 2017 using the TMY2/ISO ISO 15927-4:2005
methodologies. Any naming mistakes in any of the countries are ours. More
details on the numbers of locations by country are at the end of this

Adding these data to the earlier (April/October/November 2018/February 2019)
sets for the Americas, Africa, Middle East, So Asia, and SW Pacific, Russia
(both Asia and Europe) and Central Asia, now
provides climate TMYx data at no cost for more than 7,850 locations and
another 3,200 from other data sources worldwide. All data have been through
extensive quality checking to identify and correct data errors and out of
normal range values where appropriate.

Each climate location .zip on
contains: EPW (EnergyPlus weather format),
CLM (ESP-r weather format), and WEA (Daysim weather format) along with DDY
(ASHRAE design conditions in EnergyPlus format), RAIN (hourly precipitation
in mm, where available), and STAT (expanded EnergyPlus weather statistics).
