Description 
Summary

The data have been derived within the ARENA IP. The data set consists of climatic parameters for each 12 months: - net surface heat flux - atmospheric precipitation - evaporation These data are on grids with following parameters: grid step -10 km, amount of grid nodes along axisx is 113, along axis y -56; x is directed eastward, y-northward. Grid covers all BS basin, grid step -5km, amount of grid nodes along axisx is 223, along axis y -109; Grid covers all BS basin, grid step -1km, amount of grid nodes along axisx is 216, along axis y -347; Grid covers the east part of the BS, which is limited by west by liquid boundary along 39 09' E
