functions of the software are:
To display global or regional climatological fields for one specific
month or for a group of months.
b) To perform some simple operations in the process of combining
information for several months (adding, subtracting, averaging).
c) To search for one specific meteorological station in the corresponding
database in order to display the respective annual cycle.

was developed by students at the School of Engineering of the Faculty
of Physical and Mathematical Sciences (FCFM) of the Universidad
de Chile, under the supervision of Prof. Patricio Aceituno from
the Department of Geophysics. With the sponsorship of the program
Explora – Conicyt, the first version of the software was developed
by Bernhard Lopez by the end of the 1990ís. He designed its
general characteristics, as well as the specific attributes and
capacities of the software. With the sponsorship of the World Meteorological
Organization (WMO), through its Education and Training Programme,
a group of students composed by Rolando Martínez, Sergio
Quiroga and Sergio Acevedo, under the leadership of Pablo Abalos,
developed in 2002 a new version of the software using Java as the
programming language. Keeping the basic ideas under which GEOCLIMA
was originally designed they added more flexibility to the graphic
output, and to the management of databases. They also made the software
accessible to other languages beyond Spanish. During 2007 and 2008
Miguel Gutiérrez prepared version 2.1 of the software, correcting
some errors and completing some missing information. Verónica
Pichara was in charge of the graphic design of the title page of
the program. Rodrigo Sánchez is responsible for the technical
support of the Web site (www.atmosfera.cl) where GEOCLIMA is distributed.
people have collaborated throughout the development of this software.
Observations and comments by Prof. Rene Garreaud, from the DGF,
are particularly acknowledged. GEOCLIMA v2.1 was developed with
partial support from project ACT-19 of Conicyt – Chile.
