Data & Products
Historical Data: Climate data sets are now freely available to download here.

Rainfall Return Periods: We have developed a depth duration frequency model, which allows for the estimation of point rainfall frequencies for a range of durations for any location in Ireland. Rainfall Return Period tables are now freely available by submitting the online form .
Public Works Contract data: An objective and measurable approach was adopted in relation to what is considered to be a weather event which could trigger a delay event, i.e. the contractor gets additional time. A delay event is triggered when a weather event exceeds a defined threshold (90th percentile) value in any given month.
