Assessed Datasets

As part of the High Quality Global Data Management Framework for Climate (HQ-GDMFC), the International Expert Group on Climate Data Modernisation (IEG-CDM), with experts from various disciplines, developed an approach for reviewing and cataloguing trusted datasets for informing on key climate indicators. The Global Climate Observing System (GCOS)  provided a list of key climate variables suitable for this assessment.

An initial 18 global datasets were self-assessed with the WMO Stewardship Maturity Matrix for Climate Data (SMM-CD) and results reviewed by the Commission for Climatology (CCl) Expert Team for Data Development and Stewardship (ET-DDS) in cooperation with the dataset Subject Matter Experts. Assessed dataset are then made available in this WMO Catalogue for Climate Data. Individual assessment documents for the datasets listed below are available upon request at climate-data@wmo.int. Dataset information and link to the KNMI Climate Explorer for metadata and visualization are provided under the individual datasets for most of the datasets. Please click on the dataset name to access this information.
