ETCCDI Indices from model simulations available

Jana Sillmann and her team have compeleted the computation of ETCCDI indices based on daily tempertaure and precipitation simulated by the climate models participating CMIP3 and CMIP5 projects. The indices data and documentations are available in NetCDF format from .

ETCCDI Climate Extreme Indices dataset

This is a global land-based climate extremes dataset produced through the coordination of the ETCCDMI. It comprises of 27 indices of temperature and precipitation computed from daily station data using the RClimDex software .

Note that more up-to-date indices are available from

Indices are organized by country. Data for one country are packed in one zip file. A file with the name of the country contains details of the coordinates of all stations for the country.
