FetchClimate is intended to make it easy for you to retrieve data for any geographical region, at any grid resolution: from global, through continental, to a few kilometres, and for any range of years, days within the year, and / or hours within the day. FetchClimate can also return information on the uncertainty associated with the climate data and data sources used to fulfil the request. When multiple sources of data could potentially provide data on the same environmental variable FetchClimate automatically selects the most appropriate data sources. Finally, the entire query can be shared as a single URL, enabling others to retrieve the identical data.
