* Climate model data is typically presented in [https://climatedataguide.ucar.edu/climate-data-tools-and-analysis/netcdf-overview netcdf4] format. These may be smoothly converted to csv files or [https://stackoverflow.com/questions/14035148/import-netcdf-file-to-pandas-dataframe pandas dataframes], but be aware that the data lies on irregular 3D spherical grids.
