Meteonorm Software 8.0
Typical years and historical time series - easily accessible with Meteonorm.
Meteonorm is a unique combination of reliable data sources and sophisticated calculation tools. It provides access to typical years and historical time series.
Meteonorm generates accurate and representative typical years for any place on Earth. You can choose from more than 30 different weather parameters. The database consists of more than 8 000 weather stations, five geostationary satellites and a globally calibrated aerosol climatology. On this basis, sophisticated interpolation models, based on more than 30 years of experience, provide results with high accuracy worldwide.
New: Meteonorm 8 allows access to historical time series of irradiation and temperature. The new archive contains hourly data since 2010 and is constantly updated. You can download these time series directly from the Meteonorm software.
