Through the Center for Weather and Climate and the Center for Coasts, Oceans, and Geophysics, we provide over 25 petabytes of comprehensive atmospheric, coastal, oceanic, and geophysical data.
The global land and ocean temperature departure from average for August 2018 was the fifth highest on record for the month of August.
Before and after a storm, NCEI scientists work hard at better preparing coastal communities for future tropical cyclones and hurricanes.
