Evaporation - historic gridded daily Makkink evaporation for the Netherlands for 1910-2015

Historic gridded files of daily Makkink evaporation for 1910-2015 in the Netherlands. Calculated from sunshine duration (1951-1981) and radiation (1981-2015). The number of observations varies: 1910-1981 (5), 1981-2015 (35). Reference for KNMI14 climate scenarios.
