High Plains Regional Climate Center
The High Plains Regional Climate Center is one of six regional climate centers in the U.S. managed by NOAA's National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). The mission of NOAA's High Plains Regional Climate Center (HPRCC) is to increase the use and availability of climate data in the High Plains region. HPRCC personnel work closely with scientists from other regional and federal climate centers on climate services and programs and provide a regional structure for climate applications. The long-term objectives of the HPRCC are to carry out applied climate studies, develop improved climate information products, and provide climate services in the High Plains region.
NOAA's Regional Climate Centers (RCCs) are a federal-state cooperative effort. The six centers that comprise the RCC Program provide useful and timely climate data, information and knowledge at local, state, regional and national levels. NCDC's Regional Climate Centers support a three-tiered national climate services support program. Other partners include the National Weather Service and State Climate Offices.
