Characterization of Precipitation Features in the Southeastern United States Using a Multi-sensor Approach.
A New Sea Ice Concentration Climate Data Record for Climate Studies and Monitoring
Improving United States Precipitation Observations
Developing a precipitation dataset in a common format at a resolution nearly five times greater than the current state of the art, only 1 km
Stations in the U.S. Climate Reference Network (USCRN) have recently had their capability increased to monitor soil processes and drought, by adding a soil moisture and temperature sensing suite.
Communicating knowledge of the current and future state of the climate on regional and national scale
The Geostationary Surface Albedo (GSA) algorithm is being implemented as the American contribution of an international collaboration between Europe, Japan and the US to produce a joint Climate Data Record.
Satellite proxies for tropical rainfall can identify changes in the global circulation that have impacts at mid-latitudes: these patterns help the energy sector anticipate changes in demand over the United States.
The Cooperative Institute for Climate and Satellites (CICS) is formed through a consortium of academic, non-profit and community organizations with leadership from the University of Maryland, College Park (UMCP) and North Carolina State University (NCSU) on behalf of the University of North Carolina (UNC) System. The host institutions for CICS-MD and CICS-NC are UMCP and NCSU, respectively. CICS-NC is an Inter-Institutional Research Center with the UNC System, where it is known as the North Carolina Institute for Climate Studies (NCICS). CICS-NC is co-located with NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) in Asheville, NC.
