Download Data for a Single Grid
Enter BOTH latitude and longitude either in decimal
degrees or degrees and minutes separated by a "_".
Example: Latitude 33.5
Longitude -80.75
OR Latitude 33_30
Longitude -80_45
South:   -90 to 0 North:   0 to 90
West:   -180 to 0 East:   0 to 180
Start Date:   SEE AVAILABLE DATES
 End Date: BESIDE EACH PARAMETER

Choose between two output formats (1 OR 2):
1) Download solar and meteorological parameters in ICASA ASCII column format?

Note: Precipitation usually lags in availability. See available dates when choosing the parameters in the list to the right.
This form is "Reset" if the input is out of range.
Review the Methodology Documentation for additional information about the derivation of these parameters.
