Welcome to era5cli’s documentation!

A command line interface to download ERA5 data from the Copernicus Climate Data Store.

With era5cli you can:

  • download meteorological data in GRIB/NetCDF, including ERA5 data from the preliminary back extension, and ERA5-Land data.
  • list and retrieve information on available variables and pressure levels
  • select multiple variables for several months and years
  • split outputs by years, producing a separate file for every year instead of merging them in one file
  • download multiple files at once
  • extract data for a sub-region of the globe
