The Cooperative Weather Observer Program (COOP) has formally been in existence for 121 years. Through time the program has become questioned as to the usefulness and quality of the data. We will examine the reasons that COOP remains useful beyond 2010 and then we will examine the methodology and actions necessary to address the deficiencies within the program and ways to move the program from 2010 to the future.
