The US Climate Reference Network (USCRN) is a suite of climate monitoring stations maintained and operated by NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). As one of the first networks dedicated to monitor the Nation’s climate, the USCRN has over 124 stations (map below) across the US located in representative environments with redundant sensing technology to ensure data quality and continuity. Denser, regional networks (RCRN) were established in the Desert Southwest (yellow) and Alabama (red).
