UCCW Is for Educators, Scientists, Students and the Public


UCCW is for Educators, Scientists, Students and the Public


Utah Center for Climate and
Weather (UCCW) is a premier site for anyone wanting accurate information about Utah's climate and weather. The UCCW is a cooperative effort among educators and scientists to share accurate and useful information with students and the general public about Utah's past, present and future climate and weather. Cooperation and collaboration-not competition or commercialism-is the driving force behind the UCCW. All UCCW officials are non-paid volunteers.

All professionals involved in the atmospheric sciences are invited to freely submit appropriate material and links for consideration of inclusion on UCCW's website--which currently averages over 67,000 visits per month.
