The Climate Data Store (CDS) API is the service to allow users to request data from CDS datasets via a python script. These scripts use a number of keywords which vary from dataset to dataset, usually following the sections of the CDS download form.As the CDS API cannot currently return the valid keyword list on demand, they are documented on this page for some of the most popular CDS datasets.
