Availabe data


The default instance of FetchClimate at <http://fetchclimate2.cloudapp.net/> provides the following data


Environmental variables:
"abshum" : Absolute air humidity (g/m^3)
"airt" : Air temperature near surface (Degrees C)
"airt_land": Air temperature near surface. Land only areas (Degrees C)
"airt_ocean" : Air temperature near surface. Ocean only areas (Degrees C)
"depth_ocean" : Depth below sea level. Ocean only areas (meters)
"dtr" : Diurnal air temperature rate (Degrees C)
"elev" : Elevation above sea level (meters)
"elev_land" : Elevation above sea level. Land only a areas (meters)
"frs" : Frost days frequency (days/month)
"pet": Potential evapotranspiration (mm/month)
"prate" : Precipitation rate ()
"relhum" : Relative humidity (percentage)
"relhum_land" : Relative humidity. Land only area (percentage)
"soilmoist" : Soil moisture (mm/m)
"sunp" : Sunshine fraction (Percent of maximum possible sunshine)
"wet" : Wet days frequency (days/month)
"windspeed" : Wind speed at 10m (m/s)
"wvp" : Water vapour pressure (hPa)
"wvsp" : Water vapour saturation pressure (hPa)

Note that availavle variables as well as datasets are subject to change in time The list above describes the most recent configuration However specifing timestamp parameter other than "Now" may lead to different set of available data Verify the actual list using 'fcVariables()' and 'fcDataSets()' functions
