AASC Climate Services Catalog

The AASC Climate Service Catalog is an ongoing effort to document the online climate- related services provided by AASC members. The services provided by the state climate offices are the primary focus, but online climate tools offered by other membership and partners (including the regional climate centers, NCDC, and other NOAA agencies) that are of interest to the public are also listed.

The items are shown in the table below, categorized by the region that the item is relevant for. The regions are based on the 9 climate regions defined by Karl and Koss (1984). The tools that are applicable nationwide are indicated as so. There are a total of 91 products in this catalog. Finally, an item in our catalog will be featured on a monthly basis, providing a more in-depth look at the product.
