Dataset Highlight: Copernicus ERA5
The ERA5 datasets by Copernicus are among the most important publicly available climate-related datasets. With data starting from 1940, it is used and trusted by climate scientists all over the world. Copernicus recently published an article about the possibilities of the ERA5 datasets.
The ERA5 datasets hosted on dClimate's open data infrastructure are arguably easier to use compared to downloading them from Copernicus directly. Our ETL processes have cleaned up and standardized these essential climate datasets, so you can focus on the next steps.
