Climatic Study of the Near Coastal ZoneEntry ID: gov.noaa.ncdc.C00028
Abstract: Climatic Study of the Near Coastal Zone is a climatology atlas, available from the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). These atlases contain climatological summaries for the following parameters: visibility, ceiling, wind speed and direction, air temperature, sea surface temperature, waves, and surface currents. Monthly data are presented in the form of graphs, tables, and isopleth analysis. The ... atlas is softcover and is approximately 10 by 14 inches in dimension and approximately 150 pages. Six volumes were produced, but only three are available for purchase online: Malacca and Sunda Straits, Southern Red Sea and Gulf of Aden and the Southeast Pacific Ocean. The other three are out of publication and are not available: East and West Coast of the U.S. and Southern California Operating Area.
Purpose: To make a wide range of climatic data available to researchers and the public.
