U.S. Climate Reference Network (USCRN)

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on April 17, 2013

U.S. Climate Reference Network (USCRN) consists of 114 stations developed, deployed, managed, and maintained by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in the continental United States for the express purpose of detecting the national signal of climate change. The vision of the USCRN program is to maintain a sustainable high-quality climate observation network that 50 years from now can with the highest degree of confidence answer the question: How has the climate of the nation changed over the past 50 years? These stations were designed with climate science in mind…A recently completed article on the USCRN network’s first decade is available in early online release of the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society. Our full list of publications includes information on how to best cite USCRN data use.”
