Climate Record Quick Pick

With the growing size of the resource it has become increasingly difficult for users to quickly and easily navigate to desired contemporary and historical temperature representations, a situation guaranteed to worsen as we incorporate more records and diversify climatic indicators with precipitation, cloud, sunshine, storminess and soil temperatures. Frequently users a have a clear idea on what they require and do not need the thumbnail clues to tell them what a particular record entails, they just want a quick link with the minimum of bandwidth usage and delay. If that's what you are looking for then you are in the right place, otherwise, if you just want to graze or you need visual clues for the contents of particular datasets, click here to go to a much larger but somewhat cumbersome mixed text and thumbnail option or here for the same for climate proxies.

The order is basically retained from the thumbnail version, an order which will make no sense to newcomers since it it represents an ad hoc addition order. After some agonising and discussion with frequent users the decision has been made to leave it mostly unchanged to facilitate familiar navigation for our power users to find what they want/need. Records are grouped by source and you can jump directly to the required sections by using the bookmark links below. You will find these somewhat more rationally ordered by alphabet.
