All Cal-Adapt climate tools have a “Download Chart” button that you may use to download all data and graphics displayed on screen. Any applied filters, selected date ranges, or other options and recalculations are applied to the exported data. For downloading complete and original time series data, use the Data Download Tool, Data Server, or API.
Data Download Tool
Search by climate indicator, publisher or dataset name. Follow a series of steps to select a download format (GeoTIFF/CSV), spatial extent, emissions scenarios and climate models. Certain datasets have the option of downloading resampled data using different spatial and temporal aggregations.
Cal-Adapt Data Server
All climate data provided by California’s scientific and research community is stored in their original formats on the Cal-Adapt Data Server. Gridded data are commonly formatted as NetCDF files, while station data is commonly formatted as CSV files. Some datasets (e.g. sea level rise flood extents) are available as GeoTIFF files. Datasets on the server are organized into directories by data provider/source. Navigate the directory structure and select files you want to download. Links to individual datasets are also included in the Data Download Tool.
3rd Party Integrations
The following packages enable working with the Cal-Adapt API using the R programming language and Python programming language with the ArcGIS Pro desktop software.
