RMBL collects and hosts multiple types of data for scientists and the public.

We are working on making our data collections accessible on the web.

Before downloading or using any RMBL data, read the RMBL Data Use Policy.


WEATHER STATIONS:  Data collected from RMBL’s six permanent weather stations are available here.  This interface gives access to data since 2017. We have access to some prior data, but it’s messy. Contact the Executive Director at ( director at ), if you’d like weather station data before 2017.

We acknowledge that this user interface lacks critical metadata and other elements. We are developing a better user interface that we expect to be operational summer of 2019. We apologize for the problems and appreciate your patience.

RMBL also hosts an EPA weather station, which has been in place since the 1980’s. EPA weather station data are available through the EPA website. Follow the link to download Castnet data for the Gothic site.

AVALANCHE MAPS: Here are some images of avalanches that ran in early March, 2019.

HERBARIUM:  RMBL’s online herbarium collection is hosted by SEINET.  Follow the link for ‘Search Collections’.

POLLINATION PAPER: Macior, L. W. 1974. Pollination ecology of the Front Range of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Melanderia 15: 1-59. This out of print paper is searchable and is posted HERE.

GIS COVERAGES and LIDAR DATA.  We are working to make these accessible on the web by spring, 2019. In the meantime, if you are interested in Lidar data or coverages in the vicinity of Gothic, Colorado, contact the GIS Coordinator (gis at
