public climate data available on AWS S3

I just came across the following datasets in hosted on AWS S3. That makes them convenient to process if one uses AWS.

    nad I think that is a button to create an AWS account the quote refers to the use of AWS resources in general. Usually the highest costs are for machine time and that goes to Amazon. If you run an EC2 machine in AWS then using it to read data in S3 is free. There are fees for pulling data from S3 to machines outside AWS.

    Aha thanks. Do you know who is expected to pay for this ?

    I pay for my Amazon AWS about $16 a month

    "Greetings from Amazon Web Services, This e-mail confirms that your latest billing statement, for the account ending in ****7762, is available on the AWS web site. Your account will be charged the following: Total: $16.24"

    AWS-hosted Dynamic Context Model server

    It is running pretty reliably lately.
