Historic Climate Data

Sources of historic climate data that can be used to establish baseline climate conditions for vulnerability risk assessments. 


Datasets for Indices of Climate Extremes

These CLIMDEX datasets are aimed at researchers who are interested in assessing global and regional variability and trends in climatic extremes or who wish to assess global climate model output.
