Abstract

The main aim of the CARPATCLIM (Climate of the Carpathian Region) project was to make gridded climatological database and Digital Climate Atlas of the larger Carpathian Region as one of the final products,freely available. The data are for the period between 1961-2010, on 0.1o spatial and daily temporal resolution. A dozen of essential meteorological variables, together with variety of climate indices are presented with downloading possibility. The homogenization, harmonization and interpolation of datawerecarried out through regional cooperation, overcoming some common problems with the use of unified methods. MASH (Multiple Analysis of Series for Homogenization) software was used in each of the participating countries for quality control, homogenization and harmonization of observed climatological data, while MISH (Meteorological Interpolation based on Surface Homogenized Database) was applied for spatial interpolation. The Digital Climate Atlas was developed as aWeb GIS application based on modern web standards. Additionally,one very important product is the Metadata Catalog, designed as a searching tool of metadata database by various parameters. It contains all the metadata developed within the project, together with the original observationsmetadata. All the work was performedwith the objective to contribute to availability and accessibility of both climate data and metadata, in order to be used for studies of regional climate variability and regional climate change as well as studies in applied climatology.
