The Database for Hydrological Time Series of Inland Waters (DAHITI) was developed by the Deutsches Geodätisches Forschungsinstitut der Technischen Universität München (DGFI-TUM) in 2013. DAHITI provides water level time series of lakes, reservoirs, rivers, and wetlands derived from multi-mission satellite altimetry for hydrological applications. All water level time series are free available for the user community after a short registration process.
The Water Survey has flourished for more than a century by anticipating and responding to new challenges and opportunities to serve the citizens of Illinois. Today, the ISWS continues to demonstrate flexibility and adaptability by developing new programs, while continuing to provide long-standing services upon which Illinoisans have come to rely. The Scientific Surveys of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are the primary agencies in Illinois responsible for producing and disseminating scientific and technological information, services, and products related to the environment, economic development, and quality of life. To achieve this mission, the Scientific Surveys conduct state-of-the-art research and collect, analyze, archive, and disseminate high-quality, objective data and technical information. The information, services, and products provide a sound technical basis for the citizens and policymakers of Illinois and the nation to make wise social, economic, and environmental decisions.

SMHI's observation stations collect large quantities of data, including temperature, precipitation, wind, air pressure, lightning, solar radiation and ozone. Satellites and radar installations are also important sources. Data is presented continuously on and used in SMHI's various weather services. In the Explorer SMHI’s data ( ) you find data available with open access (in Swedish). Information in English on Oceanographic observations, Model data (HIROMB BS01), Machine to machine – feeds, and Conditions of use.
Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and proudly operated by Battelle, the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) program provides open, continental-scale data across the United States that characterize and quantify complex, rapidly changing ecological processes. The Observatory’s comprehensive design supports greater understanding of ecological change and enables forecasting of future ecological conditions. NEON collects and processes data from field sites located across the continental U.S., Puerto Rico, and Hawaii over a 30-year timeframe. NEON provides free and open data that characterize plants, animals, soil, nutrients, freshwater, and the atmosphere. These data may be combined with external datasets or data collected by individual researchers to support the study of continental-scale ecological change.
The RAM Legacy Stock Assessment Database is a compilation of stock assessment results for commercially exploited marine populations from around the world. The recently updated database offers many graphical and analytic tools to explore the data, as well as new data sets including; assessments from N.W. Africa, assessments from the Mediterranean Sea, assessments from Chile, data sets on Pacific salmon. The database is seeking collaborators to cover parts of the world that we are missing.
This web site provides adjusted and homogenized climate data for many climatological stations in Canada. These data were created for use in climate research including climate change studies. They incorporate a number of adjustments applied to the original station data to address shifts due to changes in instruments and in observing procedures. Sometimes the observations from several stations were joined to generate a long time series. The adjusted and homogenized data are provided for four climate elements: surface air temperature, precipitation, surface pressure, and surface wind speed.
The Inter-Sectoral Impact Model Intercomparison Project (ISIMIP) is a community-driven climate impact modeling initiative that aims to contribute to a quantitative and cross-sectoral synthesis of the various impacts of climate change, including associated uncertainties. It is designed as a continuous model intercomparison and improvement process for climate impact models and is supported by the international climate impact research community. ISIMIP is organized into simulation rounds, for which a simulation protocol specifies a set of common experiments. The protocol further describes a set of climate and direct human forcing data to be used as input data for all ISIMIP simulations. Based on this information, modelling groups from different sectors (e.g. agriculture, biomes, water) perform simulations using various climate impact models. After the simulations are performed, the data is collected by the ISIMIP data team, quality controlled and eventually published on the ISIMIP Repository. From there, it can be freely accessed for further research and analyses. The data is widely used within academia, but also by companies and civil society. ISIMIP was initiated by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA).

WISER is a self-service platform for data of the Global Networks of Isotopes in Precipitation (GNIP) and Rivers (GNIR), hosted within the IAEA's repository for technical resources (NUCLEUS). GNIP in WISER currently contains over 130,000 records, and stable isotopes are current to the end of 2013, and will be updated as verified data comes in. Parts of the GNIR water isotope data is online as well (synoptic/time series), although we are still in process of verifying and completing GNIR data uploads and for other isotopic parameters over the next year. Check back occasionally for GNIR updates. Tritium data after 2009 is in the process of being updated in the next year. When accessing WISER through the URL, you will be forwarded to the NUCLEUS log-in page. After entering your user credentials and validation, you will be forwarded to the WISER landing page.
Using a combination of remote sensing data and ground observations as inputs, CHC scientists have developed rainfall estimation techniques and other resources to support drought monitoring and predict crop performance in parts of the world vulnerable to crop failure. Policymakers within governments and non-governmental organizations rely on CHC decision-support products to make critical resource allocation decisions. The CHC's scientific focus is "geospatial hydroclimatology," with an emphasis on the early detection and forecasting of hydroclimatic hazards related to food-security droughts and floods. Basic research seeks an improved understanding of the climatic processes that govern drought and flood hazards in FEWS NET countries ( The CHC develops better techniques, algorithms, and modeling applications in order to use remote sensing and other geospatial data for hazards early warning.
