Knowledge Products

Climate Web information products accelerate your access to, or allow you to modify to your own purposes, the information in the Climate Web in which you are most interested. Note that only a few products in each category show up on this page, but all can be accessed through product categories shown to the right of the page.

If you don’t see what would be of particular value to you, drop us a note! If we don’t already have it, we can probably build it pretty quickly.

With the exception of downloadable materials, prices reflect one year of access to information products.

Knowledgebase Downloads

Are you focused on a particular climate topic? If so, you probably find the Climate Web both promising and frustrating. You’d love to leverage the hundreds of hours of work that have gone into organizing and exploring a particular climate change topic, but maybe you would like to see the information organized differently. Maybe you would like to be able to adapt the information to your own needs.

With Downloadable Climate Knowledgebases you get a full slice of the Climate Web that you can modify and expand however you wish! You’ll be able to take advantage of the fact that the desktop version of the Climate Web’s TheBrain® software is much more powerful than the web interface suggests. TheBrain® software makes it remarkably simple to reorganize information, even using only the free version of the software. Some of our downloadable slices of the Climate Web are shown below — contact us for additional slices that may be available!
