dc.description.abstractThe study of weather phenomena is of growing importance. Changes in the overall conditions of the world, such as global warming, ozone depletion, and the uncertainty on the causes of these events, has made weather research more important than ever. To study these phenomena, researchers rely on archived weather data. Which are usually found by request at institutions that operate weather stations. The researcher’s analysis is facilitated if stored in electronic form, such as computer documents or spreadsheets. The structure, and format of the data, along with the capacity to manipulate and display it in a user-friendly interface will greatly enhance the researcher’s study of the climate data. Here I present an application for obtaining and displaying weather data on the Internet, a database system that allows the retrieval of data by other organizations, and proposed data structures to be adopted for the sharing of this type of data.en_US

Cambios en las condiciones generales del mundo, como calentamiento global, destrucción de la capa de ozono, y la incertidumbre sobre las causas de estos eventos, han hecho el estudio climatológico más importante que nunca.

El análisis de data se facilita si es almacenada en forma electrónica, como documentos de computadora u hojas electrónicas.
