Handwritten meteorological record

NCDC provides analyses of weather and climate events, placing them into proper historical perspective, understanding their unusualness, and, increasingly, comparing recent events to expectations of future climate conditions. These include yearly, seasonal, and monthly climate monitoring reports, regional and sectorial specific climate information, information on disasters and extreme events, and analyses of paleoclimate information.

  • Monthly Global Climate Reports
    Analyses of a collection of information from around the world that aim to improve understanding of Earth's large-scale climate conditions.
  • Monthly U.S. Climate Reports
    Analyses of the Nation's recent climate conditions, their unusualness, and their long-term trends for many aspects of the climate system.
  • Economics/Billion Dollar Disasters
    Summaries of climate events in the United States and globally that have great economic and societal impacts from 1980 to 2012.
  • Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society State of the Climate Report
    Every year NCDC leads an international effort to develop the peer-reviewed State of the Climate Report, which has been an annual supplement to Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society (BAMS) since the report's introduction (as “Climate Assessment”) in 1991. It summarizes the global and regional climate of the preceding calendar year and places it into historical context. Recent editions cover more than 40 Essential Climate Variables, with input from more than 350 authors from nearly 50 nations.
  • Paleoclimate Perspectives
    Analyses and assessments of climate conditions from a paleoclimate perspective that strive to educate, inform, and highlight the importance of paleoclimate research.
