Climate Data Catalogue

WMO Catalogue for Climate Data

The WMO Catalogue for Climate Data is a trustworthy source for climate data. The datasets have been assessed through an internationally agreed maturity evaluation process.  An initial 18 global climate datasets have been so far submitted by international domain Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) and assessed. The content of the catalogue is  expected to expand quickly in the future with the addition of other global datasets as well as regional and national climate datasets. 


  • The datasets maturity evaluation process uses the WMO Stewardship Maturity Matrix for Climate Data (SMM-CD)  which was developed and applied  under the auspices of  the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).
  • The datasets linked landing pages are provided by the KNMI Climate Explorer and include data access and metadata among others.
