Author(s):Wendland, Wayne M.; Changnon, Stanley A., Jr.; Vogel, John L.
Subject(s):regional climate centers
climate data
Abstract:Over the past 3 years two Regional Climate Centers have evolved as institutional innovations (Midwest and Northeast U.S.) to serve real and perceived regional needs for climate data and information. The objectives of the Centers include: (1) to improve communications between federal agencies and State Climate Centers (SCO so as to enhance their disparate objectives; (2) to guide State Climate Centers toward solutions of varied staffing, facilities, and institutional problems; (3) to coordinate regional climate research projects; and (4) to provide data and information to public and private users at the state and regional levels. Communication activities have included the actual transfer of data, information, or advice from the State to the Regional Center or vice versa.
