What is this tool?
Calculates various monthly statistics
for a station over a range of years chosen by the user
Calculations are based on daily input data
Tables and graphs can be created for the following climate variables:
What datasets can be used?
Works with historic station data as well as gridded datasets
All data sets are made available through the ACIS system.
What can you do with this tool?
Generate summary tables
Generate time series graphs for individual months or
summarize several months in one graph
Get raw data behind the graphics
Letters after data values in the columns labeled F (Flag) show number of missing days.
Letters after annual values indicate number of missing months.
(a = 1 day missing, b = 2 days missing, f = 6 days missing, z = 26 or more values missing).
On the far right the column "An" summarizes the monthly data for a particular year.
General statistics for each month summarized over the years defined in
the "Year Range" option.
Example: Variable: Precipitation, Statistic: Sum, Year Range 1937 - 1947
MEAN: Mean of the monthly sums of precipitation values from 1937 to 1947.
SD: Standard Deviation of the monthly sums of precipitation values from 1937 to 1947.
SKEW: Skew of the monthly sums of precipitation values from 1937 to 1947.
MAX: Maximum of the monthly sums of precipitation values from 1937 to 1947.
MIN: Minimum of the monthly sums of precipitation values from 1937 to 1947.
YRS: Number of years used in calculation.
Plotting options in panel above the graph
Pick the months you want to visualize by clicking the checkboxes next to the month names.
You can either plot each month individually or you can summarize the data for the chosen months.
Pick the appropriate option from the dropdown menu above the month names.
Add a running mean by checking the checkbox in the top middle of the panel
and choose the appropriate number of years for your running mean.
The top middle of the panel also contains a checkbox to add the range of the data that is plotted.
The right side of the panel has options to show or hide the legend and to change the chart type.
On the Graph
Hover your mouse over a point on the graph to see the date and data value at that point
Click and drag on the graph to zoom in on a particular area.
A "Reset Zoom" button will pop up on the top righ hand side of the graph. This will allow you to reset the zoom to it's default value.
The legend is movable. Just hover your mouse over the double dots, click and move the legend to the desired position.
