Single Site Climate Data

This interactive tool will generate a graph of historical and future climate for a specific location, as well as downloadable data for further analysis.

For more information on future climate emission scenarios, follow this link to information and descriptions of the scenarios from the World Meteorological Organization.

Climate Timeline

  This interface provides access to 130 year historical plus 100 year future prediction data*. Data includes temperature, precipitation, snow, surface runoff, and solar radiation under low, medium, and high CO2 emission scenarios.
If you are using this with the GLOBE Carbon Cycle Biomass Accumulation Model, choose the Annual Time-line!

For a more in-depth analysis, see the Monthly Climate Time-line.  Download data at a monthly time-step to investigate climate changes at a finer scale, and explore differences between seasons.

Climate Change Comparisons

    An interactive graph (a Google Motion Chart) of temperature vs. precipitation over 130 years of historical data and 100 years of future predictions*.  Future climate projects are from a
high CO2 emission scenario. With this product, you can compare the changes in climate at two different locations by inputting two different latitude/longitude pairs. Also provides biome information and a downloadable data file for further analysis.

Seasonal Albedo

    For any latitude/longitude pair, the site will generate a graph of monthly albedo, as well as a table of land cover type and albedo values for each month.**
