The Pacific Climate Data Set Surpasses 1 Billion Observations

After collecting data for nearly 13 years, the Pacific Climate Data Set recently surpassed one billion observations for British Columbia. The PCDS holds observations from over 7000 stations across the province, with the oldest records going back to 1870. More observations are added hourly, with resolutions from 15 minutes to semi-daily and with a wide range of variables available, from surface temperature and precipitation to upwelling radiation and soil moisture.

PCIC extends its gratitude to its partners who make this project possible: the British Columbia Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy, the British Columbia Ministry of Agriculture and Food, the British Columbia Ministry of Forests, the British Columbia Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, the British Columbia Ministry of Emergency Management and Climate Readiness, Rio Tinto, BC Hydro, Environment and Climate Change Canada / Environnement et Changement climatique Canada, Government of Northwest Territories, Metro Vancouver and The Capital Regional District.
