MAGO ERA5- Land climate Hourly Data Explorer

Easily access high-resolution climate data for a specific area and the variables of your interest.

End Users

Tailored for water managers, irrigation communities, farmers, and scientists seeking estimates of past and current climate data.

Solution Overview

Users can visualize different climate variables for a specific date on the map, select a pixel on the map to view the resulting graph, and then download the corresponding time series in CSV format, which includes up to one month of hourly data at 9 x 9 km resolution.

Innovation

The MAGO ERA5-Land climate Hourly Data Explorer is the first free tool that enables the map visualization and downloading of hourly time series data for multiple variables from ERA5-Land dataset. This tool leverages the Climate Data Store Toolbox, a free platform, and utilizes certain preliminary codes with limited functionality developed in the toolbox catalogue.

Key Features

  • Select your area, date, and variable of interest.
  • Available variables for the ERA5-Land application include wind components, dewpoint temperature, temperature, potential evaporation, solar radiation, precipitation, and volumetric soil water layer. '10m_u_component_of_wind,' '10m_v_component_of_wind,' '2m_dewpoint_temperature,' '2m_temperature,' 'potential_evaporation,' 'surface_solar_radiation_downwards,' 'total_precipitation,' and 'volumetric_soil_water_layer_1.'  

Case Study

As part of the MAGO  project, the solution has been tested in Spain.

Technology Stack and Methodology

To access and process data, the Climate Data Store Toolbox was utilized. The toolbox is a free web-based application that empowers users to explore and visualize earth observation and climate data. Its custom script editor allows users to create and execute their own Python code for processing and analyzing the data.

About

Open-source tools for water management developed in MAGO Prima

Various free and open-source solutions have been developed to provide water managers, irrigation communities, farmers, and scientists with access to water quality information from Sentinel 2 satellites, as well as accurate historical and future climate data from the Copernicus Climate Data Store. 


In a nutshell: 

1. These tools operate within well-established, freely accessible web platforms, specifically the Sentinel Hub EO Browser and the Copernicus Climate Data Store Toolbox. By leveraging these platforms, users can benefit from the reliability and popularity enjoyed by thousands of other users.

2. These tools consist of open-source codes that have been integrated into these web platforms, allowing users to execute and customise the code to their needs. 

3. The tools enable the processing of free datasets, including satellite images and climate modelling data. 

4. Users can conveniently view the results directly on the web platform's interface, presented as interactive maps and time series plots.

5. All that's required to run these applications is an internet connection, and it's best to use a computer for optimal interface visibility and file downloads.

6. These tools have been developed with great care and dedication by CETAQUA, the coordinator of the PRIMA MAGO Project, with the aim of benefiting end-users. We encourage you to make full use of these tools and share them with others!
