Data Access

The Observatory has a large amount of data collected by automatic systems or by the staff during scientific expeditions. One of the fundamental tasks of the Observatory is to distribute the data to the scientific community for which over the years has been realized a database climatological through which are today made the majority of graphics on this website. Some of these data, as specified below, they are subjected to validation procedures.

The data that you can request, after acceptance of the Protocol, are the following:
