Reference: New Climate Info Resource from NOAA and Other Organizations

From the NOAA Climatic Data Center:

NOAA, the North Atlantic Landscape Conservation Cooperative, the National Wildlife Federation, and the Environmental Protection Agency facilitated the development of a new regional climate resource portal for much of the Eastern United States. Now operational at NEclimateUS.org, this resource provides weather and climate information for the eastern U.S. region as well as Atlantic Canada and Quebec.

Also known as NExUS, this new online database offers access to data and information for Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia.

The resource identifies available data, products, and services; captures planned and ongoing projects; and summarizes needs for climate information as articulated in state climate-adaptation publications. Unlike a general web query, the database’s search tool pinpoints regionally relevant climate information and will display collaborative opportunities across the network of climate-focused programs and partners in the eastern United States.
