NCDC Publications—Where and How?

Linda Preston, National Climatic Data Center, Asheville, NC

The National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) as publisher offers many current and historical titles of value to the nation and the world. Its publishing has evolved allowing for various types of NCDC access: (1) free data: a)Data and Products link: Free Data; b)Personal Name Bibliography; and c)WSSRD, an interim database of just-scanned older print documents; (2) data services that are complicated enough to require the assistance of NCDC customer service meteorologists and meteorological technicians which may or may not require recovery costs; and (3) data from NCDC's online store which require recovery costs. Have you found use for NCDC resources and do you feel comfortable finding your way around them? Access through the above sources will be demonstrated online, among others. .
