Abstract:
Climatic Atlas of the Outer Continental Shelf Waters and Coastal Regions of Alaska is a climatology atlas, available from the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). These atlases update the knowledge of the climatological conditions for the Alaskan marine and near coastal zone. They contain means, extremes, and percent frequency of occurrence of threshold values for these elements: wind, visibility, present weather, sea level pressure, air and sea surface temperature, clouds, waves, and such supplemental information as storm surges, tides, sea ice, cyclone tracks, surface currents, bathymetry, detailed weather, and aviation weather. Data are presented primarily at a monthly resolution in the form of graphs and isopleth analysis. Data is comprised of 4.5 million surface marine observations and 8.5 million observations from 66 coastal and island stations. The 1988 atlas is softcover and is approximately 11.5 by 11.5 inches in dimension and approximately 600 pages. All three volumes are available for purchase online. They consists of Vol. I Gulf of Alaska 1988, Vol. II Bering Sea 1988, Vol III Chukchi-Beaufort Sea 1988, Vol. I Gulf of Alaska 1977, Vol II Bering Sea 1977, Vol. III Chukchi-Beaufort Sea 1977. To make a wide range of climatic data available to researchers and the public. SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION: publication CURRENTNESS REFERENCE: Ground Condition Pricing is dependent on customer order specifications.
