National Climatic Data Center

The National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) is the world's largest active archive of weather data. NCDC produces numerous climate publications and responds to data requests from around the globe. The NCDC website can be used to view or download data, graphs and maps from a vast array of resources. The data is broadly organized into three categories: climate, satellite and radar. Some examples of topics are marine buoy data, atmospheric data, weather data, images of forest fires and hurricanes, snow depth maps and many others. Users may also search by data type or geographic location. Details about climate research, climate monitoring, and climate extremes and events are provided.
