The CIMSS Climate Digest was produced monthly for several years, featuring highlights from NCDC global analysis. Our goal was to provide a visually informative summary of the previous month’s global weather and climate to encourage environmental intelligence and a Climate-Smart Nation.
Along with creating monthly Climate Digest datasets for Science On a Sphere (SOS) exhibits, the EarthNow project produced similar YouTube videos for Internet viewing. By watching a Climate Digest, whether on a large spherical display, a computer monitor or mobile device, viewers could get a comprehensive monthly global climate brief in mere minutes.
In 2016 we experimented with quarterly Climate Digest products. The product is currently in review and may be discontinued.
