The Climate Prediction Center's (CPC) products are operational
predictions of climate variability, real-time monitoring of
climate and the required data bases, and assessments of the
origins of major climate anomalies. The products cover time
scales from a week to seasons, extending into the future as far
as technically feasible, and cover the land, the ocean, and the
atmosphere, extending into the stratosphere.

These climate services are available for users in government,
the public and private industry, both in this country and
abroad. Applications include the mitigation of weather related
natural disasters and uses for social and economic good in
agriculture, energy, transportation, water resources, and
health. Continual product improvements are supported through
diagnostic research, increasing use of models, and interactions
with user groups.
