ClimaDat, observing to learn

We encourage the study of the climate to detect and gain more insight into the effects of climate change.

ACCESS TO CLIMADAT
  • WHAT WE DO

    ClimaDat is a pioneering network of stations for the study and investigation of the climate and climate change.

    In collaboration with the Catalan Institute of Climate Sciences (IC3), we've set up a network of climate measurement stations that provide us with climate data that are freely accessible almost in real time.

    This helps to study and share the interrelationships between the world's different climate systems and the two-way influence of the global and local climate.

    What does ClimaDat observe?

    • Temperature and humidity of the air (and land).

    • Relations between Climate and Diversity.

    • Responses in ecosystem activity.

    • Information of educational interest.
       

    What insights does ClimaDat provide?

    • The impact of global change on the climate.

    • The relationship between global and local.

    • Predicting and forecasting climate.

    • The action of greenhouse gases.

  • WHO IT'S FOR

    The scientific community studying climate change and its impact, as well as anyone interested in this area.

  • HOW WE HELP

    Stations in particularly sensitive locations

    In collaboration with regional governments we've set up observation and research stations in regions that are particularly sensitive to climate change, either due to their location or to their distinctive ecosystem.

    Free access to the data

    The climate , bio- and geo-chemical data obtained are available on different platforms such as climadat.es

    Raising awareness

    Climadat carries out important work in spreading and raising awareness of the climate, through CosmoCaixa and online platforms. 

  • Freely available data almost in real time

  • 8 observation and research stations in Nature Parks and Biosphere Reserves

  • 6 autonomous communities
