U.S. Climate Reference Network

USCRN Station

The U.S. Climate Reference Network (USCRN) is a systematic and sustained network of climate monitoring stations with sites across the conterminous U.S., Alaska, and Hawaii. These stations use high-quality instruments to measure temperature, precipitation, wind speed, soil conditions, and more.

The vision of the USCRN program is to provide a continuous series of climate observations for monitoring trends in the nation's climate and supporting climate-impact research.

Stations are managed and maintained by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) National Centers for Environmental Information.
