The American Association of State Climatologists has created a set of data and tools available to the public in an ongoing effort to document the online climate-related services provided by AASC members. The services provided by the state climate offices are the primary focus, but online climate tools offered by other membership and partners (including the regional climate centers, NCDC, and other NOAA agencies) that are of interest to the public are also included.

A link to this data set will be included under the Resources tab on the EOAS website.
