NEXRAD National Mosaic Reflectivity Images is a service available at the web site of the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). The outside user can put in a day of interest as early as January 1, 1995 or as recently as a few days ago and bring up a page listing hourly images for that day. A composite weather radar image from anywhere in the contiguous U.S. can be viewed. Images can be zoomed by clicking on a point on the image by up to 5 times. In addition, the NEXRAD National Mosaic Reflectivity images can be put into motion or animated. NEXRAD National Mosaic Reflectivity images are automatically ingested by NCDC and are provided to us by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).
To make a wide range of climatic data available to researchers and the public.
