More Climate Data Than You Ever Knew Existed
We’ve all seen graphs like this in the New York Times, showing mean global temperature into the future based on several different carbon emission scenarios:
But, did you know that same data is actually available on a much more granular level than just global means by year? And did you know more than just temperature is available? The scientific community has created projections for hundreds of variables (snow coverage, precipitation, etc) in resolutions as small as 50km squares and in time steps as small as daily, projected out into the year 2100. All of the data is there for the using.
There’s one problem.
The data is locked up in an Earth-science-specific format called netCDF that’s extremely difficult for non-scientists to understand and even harder to stitch together with other, non-climate data sets.
And the data, itself, is HUGE.
We’ve got you covered. We’ve already downloaded and reprocessed the data into more recognizable formats that are easier to process in SQL and connect to your other data. All you have to do it tell us where to put it. And, if you use Snowflake as your data warehouse, we can share it to you in their data marketplace without even having to move it, getting you up to speed in just moments and ready to analyze your own exposures to climate change.
