NOAA U.S. Climate Reference Network

The U.S. Climate Reference Network (USCRN) is a network of climate stations developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration . The USCRN’s primary goal is to provide future long-term homogeneous temperature and precipitation observations that can be coupled to long-term historical observations for the detection and attribution of present and future climate change.

Data from the USCRN is used in operational climate monitoring activities and for placing current climate anomalies into an historical perspective. The USCRN provides the United States with a reference network that meets the requirements of the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS). The network consists of 114 commissioned stations in the contiguous United States, 6 stations in Alaska, and 2 stations in Hawaii.

Below are links to all the USCRN Stations across the Southeast U.S from a Web Map Tool developed by our RCC Partner at the Western Regional Climate Center.
