In the offing, “business as usual” may come to imply the use of weather data, according to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration officials. “Climate data are part of this country's infrastructure,” says Kenneth Hadeen, director of the National Climatic Data Center, now in Asheville, N.C. “These data play a major role in decisions that businesses make every day; they are vital to our economy.” Touted as the world's largest collection of weather data, the National Climatic Data Center, has more than 150 years of weather data on file. Data originating from everything from 19th century handwritten observations to state-of-the-art equipment can be found in the center's archives.
