Free Data, Priceless Wisdom!
The Climate Data Guide, https://climatedataguide.ucar.edu, provides concise and reliable information on the strengths and limitations of the key observational data sets, tools and methods used to evaluate Earth system models and to understand the climate system. We are very pleased to announce the launch of a redesigned website, where you will find easily searchable and relevant information on well over 100 climate data sets. Unique to the Climate Data Guide, citable expert commentaries on the data sets are authored by experienced data users and developers, enabling scientists to expose their work and the diverse user community to access and understand the essential data.
We welcome individual scientists to contribute to this resource by providing their own perspectives on climate data sets and/or analysis methods. More information is at https://climatedataguide.ucar.edu/about/contribute-climate-data-guide. The Guide would also be a great venue for advertising the relevant data holdings and related services of various NCAR and UCAR programs.
