Maine State Climate Office
The Maine State Climate Office resides within the Climate Change Institute, a research center studying the causes and consequences of the Earth's natural climate variability. The scholars come from fields a diverse as biology, earth science, history, computer science, anthropology/archaeology, and engineering. Recognizing the need for a centralized, neutral source of climate information specific to Maine, University of Maine Cooperative Extension and Maine Sea Grant created Maine Climate News in partnership with George Jacobson, Maine State Climatologist, in 2009. The site is intended to be a portal to climate change science and research at the University of Maine and beyond, as well as a resource for news and climate-related activities throughout the state.
The Maine State Climate Office is a member of the American Association of State Climate Offices (AASC). The AASC is an integral component of the National Climate Service Partnership, which also includes NOAA's National Climatic Data Center and six Regional Climate Centers (RCCs).
