Climatic data sources (spatial extent, spatial resolution, temporal extent, temporal resolution)

  • EU-WATCH (World, 0.5º x 0.5º, 1975-2012, daily): UE-WATCH was an international project about water resources that produced homogenized climate data over the world based on Era-interim re-analysis.
  • DAYMET (US, 1 km x 1km, 1980-, daily)
  • WorldClim (World, 10 arc min, 1950-2000, monthly climatic averages)
  • ESGFThe ESGF (Earth System Grid Federation) web site that centralizes climate data from GCM and RCM uploaded in the frame of different international consortium, including the CORDEX regionalisation project (data access link).
  • CCAFS: Downscaled GCM data provided by the CGIAR research program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS).
  • AEMET open data (Spain, local, 1990-, daily): Open data web portal of the Spanish Meteorological Agency (AEMET).
