Weather Station Data
Dominican Republic is a small island located within the Caribbean Basin that has recently been subjected to many environmental changes. According to Germanwatch 2013, this country has been ranked as the tenth most vulnerable country in the world for long term risk. In addition, detected regional warming will enhance extreme events over the Caribbean region.
The City College of New York (CCNY) has been collecting the accessible climate data, applying quality data criterion, analyzing climatology and extreme events, and mapping the watersheds that contain the following four municipalities: Santo Domingo National District, Santiago, San Pedro de Marcorís, and Samaná.
Weather station data were collected from ONAMET and the National Climate Data Center (NCDC) from NOAA. In Samaná province, one station provides useful information from ONAMET (see Figure 1). Data for Samaná can be download here.
