Researcher from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) designed the software Monitoring Climate Change (Moclic) through which is possible to organise, store and operate geo-referenced data from climate elements.

Moclic can calculate bio and agro climatic indicators such as humidity, aridity, rain erosion and rainfall concentration.

image Using the new software information regarding temperature can be known more accurately which feeds on data from weather stations in any state or country.

Moclic project allows an agronomist to obtain annual rainfall records and relate them to the crops production figures for explanation of a possible event.

It is also possible to identify desiccation processes in a region which comes useful while considering the seeds that can resist droughts or the optimization of rainwater catching techniques, storage or types of irrigation.

The software is very simple and can be used by decision making characters, as governors, breeders, physicians, farmers, students or anyone whose repercussions could have economic politic or social effects.
