This dataset contains quality checked and processed daily maximum and minimum temperature and total precipitation data for all viable Canadian stations that report these observations. The processing includes inspection and adjustment using quality control procedures customized for gridding purposes Hutchinson, 2009 , and correction for different definition of climatological day at principal and ordinary climate stations Hopkinson, 2011 . It is used by ANUSPLIN McKenney, 2011 to produce daily grids and in other applications that involve interpolated data. References

The term "Palmer Drought Index" has been used collectively to represent multiple indices. This index is simply a water balance model which analyzes precipitation and temperature, and used as a tool to measure meteorological and hydrological drought across space and time. All versions of the index uses the Versatile Soil Moisture Budget to model the movement of water within the system, and a daily Priestly-Taylor model to estimate evapotranspiration. The Palmer Drought Index (PDI) uses monthly temperature and precipitation data to calculate a simple soil water balance.

Precipitation (moisture availability) establishes the economic yield potential and product quality of field crops. Both dry and wet precipitation extremes have the ability to inhibit proper crop growth. The maximum daily precipitation index covers the risk of excessive precipitation in the short term, while the other indices pertain to longer term moisture availability. Agriculture is an important primary production sector in Canada.
