Climate Indicators API

The Climate Indicators API returns an ASHRAE like Climate Indicators Report from a custom location and time range.

  • All parameters are available in their original source spatial resolution.
  • A request computes 120+ parameters, at three different Temporal levels.
  • Solar parameters are derived from NASA's GEWEX SRB R4-IP archive (Jan. 1, 1984 ā€“ Dec. 31, 2000), CERES SYN1deg archive (Jan. 1, 2001 ā€“ to within a few months of real time), and NASAā€™s CERES FLASHFlux project (End of CERES ā€“ to within about 7-days of real time).
  • Meteorological parameters are derived from the NASA's GMAO MERRA-2 assimilation model.
