The climate record contains multiple types of data from various sources. Data collected every month from around the globe continues this record and adds to how we understand the history of the Earth’s climate and the changes that are now occurring. NEMAC is working with NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information (formerly the National Climatic Data Center), NOAA's Climate Program Office, and the Cooperative Institute for Climate and Satellites–North Carolina to provide this data to the many sectors of society that need it for future planning and decision making.
NEMAC provides support, assistance, and expertise to NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI), NOAA's Climate Program Office (CPO), and the Cooperative Institute for Climate and Satellites–North Carolina (CICS) in their communication and delivery of important climate information. More specifically, NEMAC’s contribution typically centers on design, user research, web development, content and editorial management, and geospatial analysis for various programs and projects.
Below is a brief description of our current projects with NCEI, CPO, and CICS:
U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit
NEMAC is an integral part of the development and editorial team for the U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit. See our separate page on this project.
NEMAC is assisting with the redesign of the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) website, Drought.gov. Stay tuned for further updates in 2018.
NEMAC is working with the U.S. Global Change Research Program and scientists at NCEI to communicate a set of indicators about key aspects of our changing environment. See our separate page on this project.
NOAA’s Climate.gov web portal is a valuable resource for NOAA’s climate data, products, and services for all users. In creating an environment that encourages users to interact with and explore historical data, the website fosters a sense of perspective that promotes wise use of our most valuable natural resource: climate. NEMAC has historically contributed to the development and update of various components on Climate.gov, such as Data Snapshots and the Global Climate Dashboard.
