Description

The Swiss temperature mean describes the temperature measured on average across the entire area of the country and at the various altitudes of Switzerland. The mean has been available with a monthly resolution since 1864 and is continuously updated with the most recent values in the data files. A detailed description of the methodology used to calculate the Swiss temperature mean is published at the following link:

During data preparation and homogenisation, the data on which the mean is based may change. If the Swiss temperature mean is affected by more than 0.01 degree, the dataset is issued a new version number or a new DOI, respectively.
