Climate Data Toolbox for Matlab
Welcome to the Climate Data Toolbox for Matlab! Here are some tips on getting started with CDT:
For a complete list of CDT functions, datasets, and tutorials, check out the CDT Contents page.
You have a few options for downloading CDT. You can get the most recent release of the toolbox here (about 100 MB) and just double-click on the file to install it (described below) or you can find all the latest individual files through the Add-Ons menu (Method 2 described below), on the Mathworks File Exhange or on GitHub.
Installing CDT in Matlab
You have two options for how to install CDT:
1. If you have already downloaded the .mltbx file, navigate to it in your file system and it might look something like this:
Just double-click on that file and when the menu pops up, click Install. Installation should take less than a second.
2. Alternatively, if you haven't already downloaded the mltbx file, you can get it via the Add-On button from directly within Matlab. That looks like this in the HOME menu:
Click Get Add-Ons, look up Climate Data Toolbox, and follow the prompts to download and install CDT automatically.

Still need help?
- The fastest way to get help is to ask a question on the Matlab Answers forum.
- If you find a bug or experience some other technical issue that the Answers forum cannot solve, please report it via the CDT Issues page.
- You can also try emailing me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. I can't promise a response, but I do read all the messages I receive. To maximize your chances of receiving a response, please describe the issue you're experiencing, describe what you're trying to accomplish, include any error messages, and provide a minimal working example if applicable.
Citing this toolbox
A manuscript describing the Climate Data Toolbox for Matlab is in preparation. The citation will probably be something like
- Greene & friends, 2019? The Climate Data Toolbox for Matlab. Prestigious Journal, Vol (Issue) pages.
By the time you read this, a proper citation may be available. Please check the internet before publishing, and cite our paper accordingly. The CDT team thanks you!
