Can you give me an overview of how you have presented information to other projects?

By its very nature, the scientific study of the Earth's climate is "global."  That is we investigate the entire globe.  Therefore, one of first steps is to provide an interpretation of the data and information that is relevant locally - relevant to what you are trying to do.  Yes, we can assist in finding digital data from climate models that project the future and analyze the past.  In some cases we can provide you data.  However, in most cases, we find it better to know more about the problem you are trying to solve so that we can weigh the strengths and weaknesses of climate data and information to help decide how to collect the information that is most appropriate for your application.  Often we find, at least initially, that a short narrative description with a couple of charts explaining the weather and climate in a particular location, and how that will change, is adequate climate knowledge for a specific problem.  

Initial Resources:

Please check out our Climate Information Guide which provides a means to contact GLISA for additional guidance.

For a listing of data (observations and projections) resources please see GLISA's Data Listing.  Please note that data resources can be contributed by anyone in the communitity (GLISA staff, scientisits, practitioners, etc) and that not all resources have been evaluated for their quality.
