The Global Aridity Index (Global-Aridity_ET0) and Global Reference Evapotranspiration (Global-ET0) Version 2 dataset provides high-resolution (30 arc-seconds) global raster climate data for the 1970-2000 period, related to evapotranspiration processes and rainfall deficit for potential vegetative growth, based upon the implementation of a Penman Montieth Reference Evapotranspiration (ET0) equation. The Global-Aridity_ET0 and Global-ET0 datasets are provided for non-commercial use in standard GeoTiff format, at 30 arc seconds or ~ 1km at the equator.
