EV2 - NCDC Technical Reports

browse graphicSample Image
NCDC Technical Reports is a set of retrospective analyses produced by the Research Customer Service Group and the National Climatic Data Center from 1995 to 2008. Meteorologists and Physical Scientists at the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) produced more than 30 reports on wide-ranging topics from climatologies in Olympic cities to reanalyses of severe weather, flooding, and snow events.

Purpose In the late 1990s NCDC realized the need to host digital images of weather and climate records on the internet. As a result, EV2 was developed as a key system for providing access to the millions of original source data images in the NCDC archives. With its upload and index capability, EV2 also enables the continuation of NCDC's commitment to make more of its weather and climate data available online so that users across the world can view climate and weather records held in the NCDC archives.
