The Climate Prediction Center (CPC) provides climate services consisting of operational prediction of climate variability, monitoring of the global climate system, development of databases for determining current climate anomalies and trends, and analysis and assessment of their origins and linkages to the rest of the climate system. To support and improve these services the CPC engages in diagnostic research and studies of model output, often in partnership with other NOAA components, to improve the monitoring, 45 analysis and prediction of the physical climate system. CPC service and development activities cover time scales ranging from one week to multiple seasons, extending into the future as far as technically feasible, and cover the domains of land, ocean, and atmosphere, extending into the stratosphere. CPC products are made readily available to: Federal, state, and local government agencies dealing with agriculture, energy, transportation, water resources and health; the research community; private industry; and the public.
