The Climate TimeLine Information Tool: "Exploring Weather & Climate Change Through the Powers of 10"
Entry ID: NCDC_CLIMATE_TIMELINE
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: Designed as an online tool allowing users to examine climate change and variability at different time scales, the Climate TimeLine has been developed through a CIRES Innovative Research Grant through the NOAA Paleoclimatology Program which is part of the National Climatic Data Center. The work has been conducted with the assistance of the National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC), located at NOAA's Boulder Laboratory.
