Data Center Description
The Colorado Climate Center (CCC) is part of the Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University. Our goal is to assist the state of Colorado in monitoring climate over time scales of weeks to years. They realize that climate involves complex interactions between the atmosphere, the oceans, continental glaciers, and the land. Vegetation processes are an important component of the climate system. This service should contribute to a reduction in the state's vulnerability to climate variability and change.
CCC provides links to regional climate centers and to the National Climate Data Center where detailed climate information is provided. Other valuable climate links are also listed as additional data resources.
The CCC publication, Colorado Climate, provides articles to the public on a variety of topics. Past issues are available online as electronically accessible files.
