Please reference the use of the WATCH forcing data in any work published using http://journals.ametsoc.org/doi/pdf/10.1175/2011JHM1369.1
Please note that these data are based on climate reanalysis data, plus a spatial interpolation (from one-degree to half-degree), elevation correction and monthly-correction based on gridded observations. As such the WATCH Forcing data are designed for use in modelling (e.g. hydrological modelling) and for where good meteorological observations are not readily available.
