Climate Related Monitoring Program (CRMP)

Find on this page links to information about meteorological networks maintained by partners in the Province’s Agreement on Management of Meteorological Networks. Climate data from Environment Canada and the Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium can be found in the related links.

Under this agreement, the Ministries of Environment, Transportation and Infrastructure, Forests and Natural Resource Operations, and Agriculture are working together with BC Hydro and Rio Tinto ALCAN to make long term meteorological data available for professional users involved in climate change analysis and adaptation through portals at the Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium.
