Breathingearth - CO2, birth & death rates by country, simulated real-time CoCoRaHS - Community Collaborative Rain, Hail & Snow Network Coral Reef Watch Homepage and Near-Real-Time Product Portal Coral Reef Watch Satellite Monitoring NOAA's Coral Reef Watch Program's satellite data provide current reef environmental conditions to quickly identify areas at risk for coral bleaching , where corals lose the symbiotic algae that give them their distinctive colors. If a coral is severely bleached, disease and partial mortality become likely, and the entire colony may die. Continuous monitoring of sea surface temperature at global scales provides researchers and stakeholders with tools to understand and better manage the complex interactions leading to coral bleaching. When bleaching conditions occur, these tools can be used to trigger bleaching response plans and support appropriate management decisions. The Coral Reef Watch mission is to utilize remote sensing and in situ tools for near-real-time and long term monitoring, modeling and reporting of physical environmental conditions of coral reef ecosystems.

Climate Summary for Florida - March 2014 - Florida Climate Center Prepared by Melissa Griffin and David F. Zierden. Special thanks to L. Zuromski. Florida Climate Center The Florida State University Tallahassee, FL Average temperatures varied across the state in March. Table 1: March average temperatures and departures from normal (°F) for selected cities. Rainfall totals varied across the state in March. Table 2: March precipitation totals and departures from normal (inches) for selected cities. Table 3: Select daily rainfall records (inches) broken during March (compiled from NOAA, NWS). Figure 1: A graphical depiction of the monthly rainfall departure from normal (inches) for March is given in the figure below (courtesy of NOAA, NWS). ENSO-neutral conditions continue in the Pacific. Hazardous weather events in March. Table 4: Breakdown of storm reports submitted in Florida during March (compiled from Southeast Regional Climate Center).

NASA Earth Observatory : Home Labs | Temperature Anomalies is a search engine and API for public data. We find certain datasets to be especially powerful because the underlying phenomena they capture have such a fundamental impact on our world. Climate affects our agricultural production, the price of gasoline, the livelihood of small businesses or temporary farm workers, and ultimately the sustainability of our species on this planet. On March 31st, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released a report reaffirming the scientific community's consensus that the "worst is yet to come." At Enigma, our priority is to enable the exploration of climate change by bringing the data to the table. We are committed to connecting this entire world of public data to the developers, researchers, data scientists, and climatologists who are striving to make sense of our changing climate and its effect on our lives.
