View Resource Influence of mean climate change on climate variability from a 155-year tropical Pacific coral record

The NOAA Paleoclimatology Program posts data sets from recently published research articles. This data set is from an article by F.E. Urban et al., published in the October 26, 2000 issue of Nature [v.407, pp. 989-993]. Included here are the abstract, four figures (color), and links to the "del 18O data" and data description.
View Resource Climate Diagnostics Center (CDC)

A collaborative project of CIRES (Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences) and NOAA (the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration), the Climate Diagnostics Center (CDC) strives "to identify the nature and causes of climate variations, on time scales ranging from a month to centuries" so as to predict future climate. The homepage offers a host of online information, from a...
View Resource Climate Atlas of the United States

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA) has published (for purchase) a new CD Atlas containing 737 color maps of climatic elements, such as temperature, precipitation, snow, wind, pressure, etc., of the contiguous US from 1961 to 1990. Five of these maps can be previewed at NOAA's online store: Annual Mean Daily Average Temperature, Total Precipitation, Snowfall, Sea Level...
View Resource World Weather Information Service

The World Meteorological Organization Web site offers the World Weather Information Service page. Here, visitors will find official weather forecasts and climatological information for selected cities worldwide. Users choose a particular continent and country, and are then presented with a list of various cities they can get information on. This includes the date and time of the current forecast,...
View Resource Climatology Working Group

"The Minnesota Climatology Working Group exists to study and describe the climate of Minnesota," with partners drawn from government and academia. The group's related Web site offers visitors a myriad of helpful resources including current weather conditions throughout the state, historical climate data summaries, Twin Cities climate data, agricultural climate data, weather forecasts,...
View Resource The Science of Spring

This Topic in Depth explores the Web's offering related to the science of the spring season. The first site -- Seasons, Equinoxes, Solstices, and Climate (1) -- is offered by Assistant Professor of Physics and Astronomy, Eric G. Blackman of the University of Rochester. Visitors can learn how the earth's axis and orbit causes the seasons and what the equinox and solstice are, as well as about...
View Resource The 2000 Olympic Games: A Climatology for Sydney, Australia

Meteorologists attending or following the 2000 Summer Olympics will enjoy the data tables, maps, and discussion of Sydney, Australia's climatology provided in this 22-page publication. For example, average temperature, rainfall, and wind direction data for this Olympic venue are given. Color maps accompany text and tables.
View Resource Educational Outreach: References

As part of the Oklahoma Climatological Survey, the Educational Outreach Web site contains a References page for teachers. The materials provided are "intended to be used by teachers as refresher information prior to teaching a given subject... and are not meant to be comprehensive, but should provide adequate depth in the subject for use by most K-12 teachers." Titles of the materials include...
View Resource Introduction to Paleoclimatology

The Introduction to Paleoclimatology Web site is provided by NOAA's Paleoclimatology Program of the National Climatic Data Center. Paleoclimatology is the study of climate prior to the widespread availability of records of temperature, precipitation, and other instrumental data. The site describes why paleoclimatolgy should be studied, how it's studied, what is currently known about the subject,...
View Resource Bering Climate

The beauty of the Web as a communication tool for scientists is the opportunity for instantaneously exchanging and sharing datasets and finding. The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration has developed an amazing site, offering exceptionally well organized access to its databases including the categories of Climate Indices, Atmosphere, Ocean, Fishery, and Biology. These entire project is all...
