The Climate Data Record Program (CDRP) seeks to support the development and stewardship of Climate Data Records (CDRs) for the atmosphere, cryosphere, oceans, and land surface. The Program follows the National Research Council's 2004 distinction between Fundamental and Thematic Climate Data Records, and is initially focused on Fundamental CDRs and Thematic CDRs related to Earth's water and energy cycles and sea level. The Program seeks CDRs that will provide demonstrable benefit to end users and society. The CDRP is managed by NOAA, but is informed by other government agencies such that its results represent a government-wide contribution to climate change detection, assessment, understanding, adaptation and/or mitigation.
