Welcome, anonymous user
Please enter the KNMI Climate Explorer, a research tool to investigate the climate. This web site collects a lot of climate data and analysis tools. Please verify yourself that the data you use is good enough for your purpose, and report errors back. In publications the original data source should be cited, a link to a web page describing the data is always provided.
Start by selecting a class of climate data from the right-hand menu. After you have selected the time series or fields of interest, you will be able to investigate it, correlate it to other data, and generate derived data from it.
If you are new it may be helpful to study the examples.
Share and enjoy!
Some restrictions are in force, notably the possibility to define your own indices, to upload data into the Climate Explorer and to handle large datasets. If you want to use these features please log in or register.

|10-feb-2013||The option in the time-dependent GEV-fit of block maxima (minima) to scale the position and scale parameters simultaneously seems to work now. This option is recommended for large-scale precipitation.|
|05-feb-2013||The monthly update failed on a full hard disk, which means quite a few files have been corrupted. I am repairing most, please let me know which ones I missed.|
|09-jan-2013||Changed the way countries are treated: if a region (island) is too small to have a grid point in the interior it contributes proportional to its area. This way small countries still give a result, even though it may not be completely representative of the area of the country itself.|
|09-jan-2013||Added a set of 235 countries to the pre-defined masks. Also split up a few countries with overseas parts. Please send me useful subdivisions if you need these.|
