ERA5-Land Total Evaporation


Is anyone else having issues with the Total Evaporation variable? I find that the data may be out of order? There seems to be data over the ocean for some months, but no data over land for other months? Also the values are often negative for some reason.

Hi,

could you please send the request you did to download the data?

Thanks

Hi Joseph,

I downloaded the same data and the NaN values correspond to grid cells which are not classified as being land e.g. sea/lakes.

ERA5-Land has only valid data for land grid cells.

Do you have an exact example for the missing values you are referring to?

Thanks
