Monthly average humidity of Heihe river basin (1961-2010)

Based on the data information provided by the data management center of Heihe project, the daily humidity data of 21 regular meteorological observation stations in Heihe River Basin and its surrounding areas and 13 national reference stations around Heihe River were collected and calculated. The spatial stability analysis is carried out to calculate the coefficient of variation. If the coefficient of variation is greater than 100%, the geographical weighted regression is used to calculate the relationship between the station and the geographical terrain factors, and the monthly humidity distribution trend is obtained; if the coefficient of variation is less than or equal to 100%, the common least square regression is used to calculate the relationship between the station humidity value and the geographical terrain factors (latitude, longitude, elevation, slope, aspect, etc.) The residual after removing the trend was fitted and corrected by HASM (high accuracy surface modeling method). Finally, the monthly average humidity distribution of the Heihe River Basin in 1961-2010 is obtained by adding the trend surface results and the residual correction results. Time resolution: monthly average humidity for many years from 1961 to 2010. Spatial resolution: 500M.
