Climate Data and Online Resources

Scientists in the School of Natural Resources' Applied Climate Science area study interactions between the atmosphere and natural and agricultural ecosystems, as well as the influences of these interactions on water resources and on societies. Data associated with these studies include a network of meteorological measurements of air temperature, wind speed and solar radiation; site-specific measurements of detailed mass and energy fluxes; and products incorporating these and other environmental variables to produce indicators for agricultural and water resource management.
