"The National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) is the Nation's Scorekeeper in terms of addressing severe weather/climate events in their historical perspective. As part of its responsibility of monitoring and assessing the climate, NCDC tracks and evaluates climate events in the U.S. and globally that have great economic and societal impacts. NCDC is frequently called upon to provide summaries of global and U.S. temperature and precipitation trends, extremes, and comparisons in their historical perspective. Found here are the weather/climate events that have had the greatest economic impact from 1980 to 2013. The U.S. has sustained 151 weather/climate disasters since 1980 where overall damages/costs reached or exceeded $1 billion (including CPI adjustment to 2013). The total cost of these 151 events exceeds $1 trillion (...) In performing these disaster cost assessments these statistics were taken from a wide variety of sources and represent, to the best of our ability, the estimated total costs of these events -- that is, the costs in terms of dollars that would not have been incurred had the event not taken place. Insured and uninsured losses are included in damage estimates. Sources include the National Weather Service, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, U.S. Department of Agriculture, other U.S. government agencies, individual state emergency management agencies, state and regional climate centers, media reports, and insurance industry estimates"--Overview, <2013> update

U.S. states and territories national tsunami hazard assessment : historical record and sources for waves by Paula K Dunbar( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The national assessment in this report is essentially the same as that in 2008 except for two changes in hazard levels. The first is the increase to High hazard from Moderate for American Samoa, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands. This reflects both the devastating 2009 tsunami and better accounting for the tectonic setting within a major subduction zone. The location of all U.S. Pacific Islands in subduction zones warrants a High hazard assessment irrespective of the available (or known) runup data. In this report we examine the frequency and distribution of runup heights in each state. This resulted in the second change, raising the hazard level for the U.S. West Coast from High to High to Very High"--Executive summary, pages 1-2

World ocean database is a tool for oceanographic, climatic, and environmental research, with more than 20 years of coordinated efforts to incorporate data from institutions, agencies, individual researchers, and data recovery initiatives into a single database. WOD data spans from Captain Cook's 1772 voyage to the contemporary Argo period. Original versions of the 20,000+ datasets in the WOD are available through the NCEI archives--Website (viewed October 16, 2020)
Regional climatology of the East Asian Seas : an introduction by Daphne R Johnson( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper describes the East Asian Seas Regional Climatology documenting spatial and temporal distribution of temperature and salinity on 1°, 1/4°, and 1/10° latitude-longitude grids. The temperature and salinity data fields used to generate these climatologies were computed by objective analysis of all quality-controlled data from the World Ocean Database 2013. Highresolution climatologies (especially 1/10°) reveal numerous meso-scale features such as water masses, fronts, and river outflows. These features are described in the context of the general oceanography of the study region and compared with in situ observations of the same features reported in the oceanographic literature. The feature-centric approach is shown to be a powerful instrument for validation of the East Asian Seas Regional Climatology and, by extension, of other regional climatologies
Northwest Atlantic regional ocean climatology by Dan Seidov( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Northwest Atlantic Ocean (NWA) plays a crucial role in global climate change. The Gulf Stream and North Atlantic Current System are the key elements of northward heat transport and the Meridional Overturning Circulation in the North Atlantic Ocean. The NWA includes a resource-rich coastal zone with abundant fisheries and other natural resources. Its economic significance and climatic importance resulted in many observational and research programs spanning over many decades. To provide a more solid and improved oceanographic foundation and reference for multidisciplinary studies of the NWA, the Regional Climatology Team at the National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI), formerly the National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC) in Silver Spring, Maryland, USA, developed a new set of high-resolution, qualitycontrolled, long-term annual, seasonal, and monthly mean temperature and salinity fields at different depth levels in the NWA region. This new regional climatology is based on the temperature and salinity profiles from oceanographic in situ observations spanning more than one hundred years archived in the World Ocean Database (WOD). When computing anomalies from a climatology, i.e., from the temperature and salinity fields averaged over several decades, the mesoscale field is smoothed to prevent generation of spurious anomalies. The smoothing depends on the spatial grid resolution and thus can cause differences in climatological fields because of smoothing. On finer resolution grids with lesser smoothing, climatic residual of mesoscale eddies with spatial scale longer than grid cell sizes can be directly resolved and the remaining mesoscale background presumably represents the cumulative effect of mesoscale dynamics rather than a noise caused by objective analysis. The advantage of high-resolution analysis becomes obvious as the use of shorter influence radii in the objective interpolation procedure leads to less smoothing in the region of sharp frontal zones, especially in the coastal regions. In a sense, the finer-resolution analysis pursues the same goal as using progressively reduced grid sizes did in making headway from coarse-resolution to eddy-permitting and then to eddy-resolving numerical models of ocean circulation. The high-resolution regional climatologies are closing the gaps between observations and model simulations, which allows meaningful data-model comparisons in critical data-rich regions, such as the NWA

"As the result of a US project starting in 1981, available global surface marine data from the late 17th century to date have been assembled, quality controlled, and made widely available to the international research community in products of the Comprehensive Ocean-Atmosphere Data Set (COADS). A new name, International COADS (ICOADS), was agreed in 2002 to recognize the multinational input to the blended observational database and other benefits gained from extensive international collaboration, while maintaining continuity of identity with COADS, which has been widely used and referenced. The original COADS project, and the continuing US contribution toward the new international partnership on ICOADS, is the result of cooperation since 1981 between the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Science Foundation's National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). The NOAA portion of ICOADS is partially funded by the NOAA Climate Program Office (CPO). ICOADS data are made available in two primary forms: Observations: Surface marine reports from ships, buoys, and other platform types. Each report contains individual observations of meteorological and oceanographic variables, such as sea surface and air temperatures, wind, pressure, humidity, and cloudiness. Monthly summary statistics: Ten statistics (such as the mean and median) are calculated for each of 22 observed and derived variables, using 2° latitude x 2° longitude boxes back to 1800 (and 1°x1° boxes since 1960). Release 3.0 observations are available for 1662-2014 (456 million individual marine reports), 2° monthly summaries for 1800-2014, and 1° summaries for 1960-2014. In addition, preliminary observations and monthly summaries are available from 2015 forward (updated monthly, and lagging real-time by 2-6 weeks). These data and summary products are drawn from two separate archives: The most complete and highly processed observations are from the delayed-mode (ICOADS.DM) archive, covering 1662-2014 (note that data from 1662 through the early 1800s are extremely sparse, based on scattered ship voyages; this webpage provides extensive additional information on Release 3.0 data characteristics;). Less fully processed observations, limited to Global Telecommunications System (GTS) data, are from the real-time (ICOADS.RT) archive. These data represent an improved near-real-time (NRT) product blending observations from two GTS sources as described on this webpage. The observations and monthly summary products currently offered to users are all from ICOADS.DM through the end of 2014. That official Release 3.0 period is followed by preliminary observations and monthly summaries based on the ICOADS.RT archive"--ICOADS website (Program status)
