Climate Charts Index
There are a lot of mediocre climate sites out there, but I've found some authoritative sites that I can recommend.
Please let me know of any other good links that I could add.
- Climate entry in Wikipedia. Very good intro, with many subtopics.
- Köppen climate classification entry in Wikipedia. How climate type affects vegetation, etc.
- Wind entry in Wikipedia.
Good, plus it includes an illustration of "Dr. Arbuckle walking toward the Magical Redwood tree that Houses Gorak the Beaver." I kid you not.
- Rain entry in Wikipedia.
- Climatology and Meteorology entries from Wikipedia.
- Meteorology from the University of Illinois.
Online Instructional Modules (lessons, in other words) aimed at students. Covers weather rather than climate, but quite useful.
- Global Climate Animations from the University of Oregon.
Temperature, Water Balance, Winds, many other in nice animated displays.
- Acid rain entry in Wikipedia.
- NOAA Arctic Theme Page Focus on Arctic Climate and related topics.
- NOAA Climate Portal. Many rich, authoritative sites. NOAA has more data than anyone,
and they make it all available, sometimes free, sometimes not.
- NASA Climate Links. Mostly advanced topics. Naturally this heavily involves satellite sensing of one kind or another.
- Global Climate Animations from the University of Oregon
- Snow and Ice Data from the National Snow and Ice Data Center,
part of the University of Colorado Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences, affiliated with NOAA.
Glaciers, paleoclimate, sea ice, much more. Mostly quite technical.

I make lots of other charts, too. Here is the 'mother site':
