The provision of climate services has become a high priority for NOAA, and is a natural extension of the agency’s commitment of recent years to climate research and monitoring. The NWS has been designated the NOAA lead for the operational delivery of climate services, capitalizing on its nationwide infrastructure of local experts, its network of partners, and its close coordination with other developers of climate products. This website has been developed as a resource and aid for NWS climate service providers.
The purpose of this training is to facilitate NWS field staff's understanding and application of climate products and services (e.g., from NCEP, NOAA laboratories, Nationa Climatic Data Center products and papers). Field staff must be able to incorporate and apply new ideas and techniques of dynamic climatology at the local level. Field staff must be able to communicate climate information and concepts as part of the office outreach program. Professional Competency Units
