Meteorological data comprise air temperature at 2 m above surface, solar radiation, total precipitation, and wind speed at 10 meters above surface. Near surface meteorological variables are derived from a bias-corrected reanalysis data set, which can be accessed through the Copernicus Climate Data Store. Reanalysis data cover the historical period 2015-2019 and refer to Mulargia reservoir.

Parameter: Dates are expressed in number of days from a fixed, preset date (January 0, 0000) in the proleptic ISO calendar, surface downwelling shortwave radiation is expressed in W/m2, total precipitation in meters, air temperature in oC, and wind speed in m/s
