Initialized Datasets

Probably the hardest part in working with climpred is getting the initialized dataset complying to the expectations and data model of climpred. For names, data types and conventions of xarray.Dataset dimensions and coordinates, please refer to Setting up your Dataset.

Here, we list publicly available initialized datasets and corresponding climpred examples:
