REEEP Climate Smart Thesaurus

"The Climate Tagger is backed by the expansive Climate Compatible Development Thesaurus, a vast catalogue of specialized terminology, including mapped links to synonyms and related terms, in five languages and across a range of sectors relevant for climate compatible development. REEEP began compiling the Climate Compatible Development Thesaurus (or Climate Thesaurus) in 2011 (...). The Climate Thesaurus is regularly updated and expanded to additional areas and languages, and can be targeted to incorporate specific sectors on an as-needed basis.

Weather Words

"Weather forecasts and warnings have to compress a lot of information into standardised, brief messages. Forecast and warning weather terms represent the more detailed definitions provided here. Forecasts and warnings have to accommodate variations across the time range, and often large areas, that they apply to. It is important to understand the use of duration and distribution terms, especially for elements like showers and thunderstorms, when considering the impact for a specific location or time."
