In response to increasing demand, this Web site was developed primarily
by Kenji Matsuura and C. Willmott to help distribute easily and widely
the gridded climate data sets, documentation and related
publications produced by Willmott, Matsuura and collaborators.
Support from NASA
is most appreciated, as is
the many fundamental contributions made by colleagues and
former graduate students. David Legates, Scott Robeson, Clint Rowe, Johan
Feddema, Scott Webber, Mike Rawlins, Petra Zimmermann, Yale Mintz and
Charlie Vorosmarty all have made significant contributions.
