Abstract:
NOAA Weather Charts is a CD-ROM product archived at the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). Most of these regional and global weather charts were prepared by the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) and its predecessor agencies, and archived by the NCDC. The NCDC archive of weather charts extends back as early as 1899 for the U.S. Daily Weather Map series. The archive for Constant Pressure (Upper Air) and North American Surface charts begins in March 1942. Subsequent charts have been added or deleted since then. The original archive consisted of paper charts which were later placed on microfilm. Microfilm was the official archive media through September 1994, when archival on computer digital media began. Selections include the following recent chart types, but are not limited to them. 1) Chart Series - Surface and Upper Air Weather Charts A) North America: Constant Pressure B) N Hemisphere: Constant Pressure C) North America: Surface D) N Hemisphere: Surface E) S Hemisphere: Constant Pressure 2) Chart Series - Initial Analysis and Forecast Charts A) North America: 500 mb Heights/VorticityB) N Hemisphere: 500 mb Heights/Vorticity C) N Hemisphere: Mean Relative Humidity/Vertical Velocity D) N Hemisphere: Surface Analysis/1000-500 mb Thickness E) S Hemisphere: Surface Analysis/1000-500 mb Thickness 3) Chart Series - Tropical Strip/Precipitation and Observed Weather Charts A) Tropical Strip: Constant Pressure B) Tropical Strip: Surface C) Composite Moisture Index D) Observed Precipitation, Snowfall, and Temperature E) Radar Summary F) Weather Depiction G) Winds Aloft. To make a wide range of climatic data available to researchers and the public.
