July 22, 2019
- Abderrahmane Yagouti (Manager, Canadian Centre for Climate Services, ECCC)
This webinar provided an overview and demonstration of ClimateData.ca, a user-friendly online climate data source. With the support from Environment and Climate Change Canada’s Canadian Centre for Climate Services, ClimateData.ca is the result of a collaboration between the Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium, Ouranos and the Prairie Climate Centre to jointly deliver climate data and information, with HabitatSeven and the Centre de recherche informatique de Montréal developing and operating the portal. The portal includes: over 25 different indicators for temperature and precipitation across Canada including extremes; historical and projected climate data at the daily level available to download at a resolution of about 10 x 10 Km; updated historical Intensity-Duration-Frequency (IDF) Curves; and a Health Sector Module, the first of a series which will include data, information and cases studies relevant for specific sectors.
