About this site

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.
