Weather / Ocean Data and Forecasts
Provides historic, current, and forecast data through the Meteomatics Weather API. These datasets are available worldwide starting with 1979. All data are based on the best numerical models, enhanced by downscaling methods and station calibration methodology.
|Spatial resolution||To avoid reaching the query limit provided by the Meteomatics Weather API, the spatial resolution (in decimal degrees) for retrieving the time series of a weather parameter will be set based on the AOI size. The minimum resolution is 90 m (0.001 decimal degrees):|
0.001 decimal degrees (AOI < 100 km2)
0.01 decimal degrees (AOI 100 - 10000 km2)
0.1 decimal degrees (AOI 10000 - 100000 km2)
1 decimal degree (AOI > 100000 km2)
|Dataset type||Optical and radar|
|Satellite sensors||The dataset is a satellite composite that merges images acquired by the following geostationary sensors:|
For more information, see Satellite Imagery.
|Data availability||Historical data: starting with 1979|
Forecast data: up until 2100
|Global weather forecasting model||mix|
|Bit depth per pixel||64-bit (float)|
|Limitations||The AOI must be minimum 0.01 km2|
The Meteomatics API provides a huge variety of climate variables and options. By default, temperatures (Celsius, 2 m above ground), accumulated precipitation (millimeters, every 5 minutes) and instantaneous wind speed (100 m) are supported for this data set. Additional parameters from Standard Weather Parameters can be passed in the query.
This dataset requires
bbox to define the AOI. All scenes will be returned that intersect with this box.
Please note: A data point is equivalent to 1 grid point in 1 time step. The block price is independent of the number of requested weather parameters, but depends on the AOI size and time steps (default: 6 hours). The resolution is automatically chosen based on the AOI size.
