Southern Regional Climate Center
The Southern Regional Climate Center (SRCC) is one of six regional climate centers in the U.S. managed by NOAA's National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). The mission of the SRCC is to increase the use and availability of climate information in the southern region of the U.S. that comprises the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas. SRCC personnel work closely with scientists from other regional and federal climate centers to enhance climate services and programs that provide a regional structure for climate applications. The long-term objectives of the SRCC are to collect, enhance and deliver climate data and products to the citizens and industries in its region, provide personalized service and outreach, and conduct applied climate research and development to enhance data quality, product utility, and promote a better understanding of the interaction between climate information and societal needs.
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.
