CERRA data retrival on geographical subdomains


Is there anyway to retrieve CERRA data setting a smaller area like in ERA5, through CDS API and something like "area" parameter?

I tried with this parameter but I received server error because CERRA grid is not regular lat-lon. Since full domain for long time series could have very big dimensions, I hope there is some  way to reduce it.

Hi Cristian,

At the moment its not possible to subset these data using the CDS API, however you can subset some of them using the CDS Toolbox e.g.:


Hope that helps,


Dear Kevin,

Thank you much, in the meantime I hope the subset can be implemented directly in the dataset downloading form.
