TMD Weather Observation
TMD(Thailand Meteorological Department) observation data. Daily (mainly with 3-hourly) rainfall, monthly average climate value(1961-80) and AGROMET obseration (daily more precise climate values). Currently 1998-2000 daily and 3-hourly rainfall data are available. (datasets are password-protected. Please consult the DB manager for use).
