I am looking to perform some modeling for agricultural research that would provide an insight into the daily maximum and minimum temperature of a specified growing region.
The question becomes: what datasets or products would I use to to model this?
I have looked into satellite imagery (specifically MODIS and LANDSAT), however I have run into issues with cloud cover or the frequency in which data is collected by the various satellite products (3-4 times a month with LANDSAT, daily with MODIS but without any meaningful way to remove cloud cover)
I am looking to strike the adequate balance between high-resolution and frequent, reliable data to then convert into something I can overlay in google earth engine.
So now I am looking to NOAA products, more specifically the National Digital Forecast Database. Are there any other products that offer higher-resolution? How frequent is the data set collected?
I am also having trouble trying to figure out what the WMO headings mean for this product tool. Again, I am looking for daily maximum and minimum temps for a specific region.
Any help or suggestions is much appreciated.
