Description

obs contains daily temperature and precipitation from Oslo. Stored as a 'daily.station.record' (clim.pact).

The other data sets are used for producing the plots in Benestad (2004) Record-values, non-stationarity tests and extreme value distributions Global and Planetary Change vol 44, issue 1-4, p.11-26 and Benestad, R.E. (2008) 'A Simple Test for Changes in Statistical Distributions', Eos, 89 (41), 7 October 2008, p. 389-390: demo(GPC2004a), demo(GPC2004b), \& demo(Eos2008): giss contains meta-data ofmonthly mean temperatures from NASA/GISS (http://data.giss.nasa.gov/gistemp/) aberdeen.t2m... turuhansk.t2m.

cet contains the central england temperature.

GPC2004 is a list containing results from Monte-Carlo simulations carried out by demo(GPC2004a) is do.monte.carlo is set to TRUE. These data are used in demo(GPC2004b) for plotting. The data are from 7 different Monte-Carlo simulations (MC1...MC7), where MC1-3 are for random gamma-distributed data (rgamma) with scale of 1, 10, and 0.1 respectively. MC4-6 are for GEV-distributed data (rgev) with shape of 1, 10, and -1 respectively, while MC7 is for random binomially distributed data (rbinom). The GPC2004 contains:

[,1] b.fit numeric coefficients from LS-fit of
     exp(actual number of records) against the length of series.
[,2-8] b.fitX numeric coefficients from LS-fit of
     exp(number of records from MC1-7, where X signifies 1-7) against the length of series.
[,9-10] b.l.fit/b.u.fit numeric coefficients from LS-fit of
     exp(5/95-percentile of MC-simulated number of records) against the length of series.
[,11-17] E.mc.X numeric MC-simulated number
     of record densities for the MC-simulations 1-7.
[,18] NS numeric Number of parrallel series

CR2003 is a list of monthly maximum temperatures from the NORDKLIM data set - see getnordklim - used to do the analysis in Benestad, R.E. (2003) How often can we expect a record-event? Climate Research Vol 23, 3-13 http://www.int-res.com/abstracts/cr/v25/n1/p3-13.html.

JC2006 contains the data used in Benestad, R.E (2006) Can we expect more extreme precipitation on the monthly time scale? J.Clim Vol. 19, No. 4, pages 630-637 http://ams.allenpress.com/perlserv/?request=get-abstract&doi=10%2E1175%2FJCLI3656%2E1
