North American Surface Analysis ChartEntry ID: gov.noaa.ncdc.C00102
Abstract: North American Surface Analysis Chart is a product that is available from the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). These analyzed surface weather charts are prepared by the National Centers for Environmental Prediction and are archived by NCDC. Data consists of isobaric analysis at 4-mb intervals on charts that depict high and low pressure areas, tropical cyclones and fronts. Surface land and marine observational data are plotted. For recent charts, geographic coverage is the indicated part of the U.S. and chart times are 00, 03, 06, 09, 12, 15, 18, and 21 GMT. Prior to October 1953, charts are more limited times of 00, 06, 12, and 18 GMT.
Purpose: To make a wide range of climatic data available to researchers and the public.
