The PRISM Climate Group gathers climate observations from a wide range of monitoring networks, applies sophisticated quality control measures, and develops spatial climate datasets to reveal short- and long-term climate patterns. The resulting datasets incorporate a variety of modeling techniques and are available at multiple spatial/temporal resolutions, covering the period from 1895 to the present. Whenever possible, we offer these datasets to the public, either free of charge or for a fee (depending on dataset size/complexity and funding available for the activity).
PRISM Climate Data is covered by Thomson Reuters Data Citation Index. Our Website Is in Transition! The new site offers updated and expanded versions of the PRISM climate datasets, incorporating observations from new station networks. As the transition is underway, some previously available datasets have not yet been recomputed or transferred. They remain available on the old website http://oldprism.nacse.org/ in case you need them. PRISM usese FDGC Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata and Biological Data Profile.
