User engagement activities at NOAA's national climatic data center
Tamara G. Houston, NOAA/NESDIS/NCDC, Asheville, NC
NOAA's National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) has recently expanded its customer service activities to include engagement with several climate sensitive user sectors. As a starting point, NCDC identified 11 user sectors which represent a majority of the users requesting climate data and information from NCDC. These sectors include: Agriculture, Civil Infrastructure, Coastal Hazards, Energy, Health, Insurance, Litigation, Marine and Coastal Ecosystems, Tourism, Transportation, and Water Resources. Each sector has a team dedicated to learning more about and serving the needs of its users. Activities within each sector include the development of sectoral fact sheets, hosting or co-hosting sectoral workshops, attending and/or participating at sectoral conferences, partnering on research activities, and representing NCDC at sectoral trade shows. Recent and upcoming activities within each sector as well as future plans will be discussed.
