Who we are
Our Story
We believe that fighting climate change is a priority that is hampered by the lack of easy access to actionable climate data. Things are getting worse as the volume of climate model data is expanding rapidly: by 2030 there will be more climate model data than satellite data. As climate data scientists we are having fun by finding new solutions to facilitate climate data use by others.
