Jan 2023: What's New in the Toolbox

Recent additions to the Toolbox:

  • Annual summary data for growing degree days, heating degree days and chilling degree days were updated for all years 1979-2023 consistent with the current state of the gridMET database in the Historical Climate Tracker and Historical Climate Scatter tools. I am also working to update the annual 'last spring freeze' and 'first fall freeze' but those aren't quite done yet. 
  • Annual summary data for chill metrics was added to the Historical Climate Tracker tool. These are in beta, so we welcome any feedback on these. 
  • Grids for the gridded data in each tool can now be shown by clicking a button under the location setter. This should be available in just about every single tool.
