Climatology Image Services

The Climatology Image Services returns time series analysis ready data responses for solar and meteorological data to be used directly by applications.

  • Provides parameters as climatologies for a pre-defined period with monthly average, maximum, and/or minimum values available.
  • All parameters are available on a 0.5° x 0.5° latitude and longitude global grid.
  • Solar parameters are derived from NASA's GEWEX SRB R4-IP archive (Jan. 1, 1984 – Dec. 31, 2000), CERES SYN1deg archive (Jan. 1, 2001 – to within a few months of real time), and NASA’s CERES FLASHFlux project (End of CERES – to within about 7-days of real time).
  • Meteorological parameters are derived from the NASA's GMAO MERRA-2 assimilation model (Jan. 1, 1981 - Dec. 31, 2013).
