Notice of public webinar meetings.
On February 8, 2010, the Department of Commerce and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced their intent to establish a new NOAA Climate Service.

Each webinar is targeted to a specific sector, and will begin with a presentation from Tom Karl, Director, NOAA National Climatic Data Center, and Transitional Director, NOAA Climate service, and will be followed by a question and answer session.
