Dendra (managed at UC Berkeley) is a cyberinfrastructure project for real-time sensor data storage, retrieval, management, and curation. It is a cloud-based, multi-organizational system, designed to support massive permanent monitoring efforts. The name is derived from dendritic networks, such as river networks or tree roots. Environmental monitoring performs in a similar manner, pulling data from the earth’s surface to a single location.
Here you will find all of the UCNRS Climate Monitoring Network data, and can link from here to each of our sites. Each page displays the latest real time data, and has links to the metadata for each station and the data download interface. If you’d prefer to access the data using an API, documentation can be found here.
The UCNRS Climate Monitoring Network was originally funded by NSF and set up in partnership with the Desert Research Institute (DRI). DRI has a wide network of weather stations that also collects climate data.
Additional links to data from climate stations in and around California can be found at the Western Regional Climate Center’s Western Region Stations page.
If you are a researcher, please help us justify the continued maintenance costs of these weather stations by filling out the simple form at the bottom of the page that describes how you will be using this data.
