For the 30th anniversary of the WSM project we compiled the new WSM database release 2016. It is a major step forward providing almost the twice the number of data records compared to the WSM 2008 database release.
The WSM 2016 has 42,870 data records and provides in a number of regions such as Australia, Canada, Great Britain, Iceland, Texas, Oklahoma, Switzerland, China, Italy, and New Zealand a significant increase of data.
