I'm interested in using a NOAA dataset for daily/hourly weather data for the U.S.
Both the QCLCD and ISD Lite datasets contain the variables in which I'm interested for the time frame with which I'm concerned (QCLCD is only post-2005). However, I can't find any information about their differences in terms of coverage, construction, etc. in the U.S.
Does anyone have experience working with/understand the differences between these two datasets?
