Southern Regional Partners

NOAA's Southern Region Climate Service, which are part of NCEI, deliver tools and information to communities and businesses to reduce climate risk and improve resiliency.

Regional Partners

  • Western Regional Climate Center
    The Western Regional Climate Center acts as a repository of historical climate data and information, disseminates high-quality climate data and information pertaining to the Western United States, engages in applied research related to climate issues, and improves the coordination of climate-related activities at state, regional, and national scales.
  • Southern Regional Climate Center
    The mission of the Southern Regional Climate Center is to increase the use and availability of climate information in the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas. Southern Regional Climate Center personnel work closely with scientists from other regional and federal climate centers to enhance climate services and programs that provide a regional structure for climate applications.
  • Southeast Regional Climate Center
    The Southeast Regional Climate Center provides operational climate service programs and expertise in climate and weather extremes for the Southeastern United States. The Southeast Regional Climate Center conducts research on climate in the Southeastern United States and translates this research into operational tools for users.
  • State Climatologists
    The state climatologists working in NOAA’s Southern Region for climate services support government, citizens, businesses, and organizations in their states by facilitating access to and use of weather and climate data; monitoring climate conditions; and producing research, reports, and updates on the state of the climate.
  • NWS Southern Region
    The NWS Southern Region has 33 Weather Forecast Offices (WFO) and 4 River Forecast Centers in its domain, and is uniquely positioned to serve as the local and state conduit for providing operational-scale climate data, forecasts, and information to its partners.
  • NMFS Southeast Regional Office
    The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS or NOAA Fisheries Service) is dedicated to the stewardship of living marine resources through science-based conservation and management, and the promotion of healthy ecosystems.
  • NOAA Gulf of Mexico Regional Collaboration Team 
    The NOAA Gulf of Mexico Regional Collaboration Team helps bring these constituents together to collectively address major challenges to healthy and resilient communities in the Gulf region. This diverse expertise is reflected in the Team’s composition, with members from across the region and all Line Offices.
  • NOAA Southeast and Caribbean Regional Collaboration
    The Southeast and Caribbean Regional Team (SECART) strives to improve the delivery of NOAA products and services to the region through improved communication, coordination and collaboration among NOAA offices and with partners within the region and by focusing NOAA’s capabilities on the region’s issues.
  • Northern Gulf Institute
    The Northern Gulf Institute engages nationally and internationally-recognized academic experts who conduct research that builds an integrated, comprehensive understanding of natural and human impacts on northern Gulf of Mexico ecosystems and associated economies in order to improve its management.
  • Cooperative Institute of Marine and Atmospheric Studies (CIMAS)
    The CIMAS provides a Center of Excellence relevant to understanding the Earth’s oceans and atmosphere. CIMAS activities include research to determine effective regional adaptation strategies, and developing and studying new climate information products and tools.
  • Gulf of Mexico landscape conservation
    The purpose of this partnership is to advance the Department of the Interior and NOAA shared goals by providing coordination and outreach across multiple programs and partnerships and by developing regionally specific coastal conservation strategies and assessments that incorporate planning for climate change.
  • Department of Interior Climate Science Centers
    The South Central and Southeast Climate Science Centers provide scientific information, tools and techniques that land, water, wildlife and cultural resource managers and other interested parties can apply to anticipate, monitor and adapt to climate and ecologically-driven responses at regional-to-local scales.
  • Landscape Conservation Cooperatives
    The Landscape Conservation Cooperatives that intersect with NOAA’s Southern Region for climate services support applied conservation science partnerships. They provide the science and technical expertise needed to support conservation planning.
