Abstract : Surface observation climatic summaries (SOCS) provide statistical climatic summaries of surface weather observations taken and recorded at specified USAF, civilian and foreign observing stations. Hourly observations are summarized from a 10-year period of record (POR). Summary of Day (SOD) information is summarized from all available data in the OL-A, USAFETAC climatic database. The surface observation climatic summaries (SOCS) replaced two other USAFETAC products of long standing: The RUSSWO(Revised Uniform Summary of Surface Observations) and LISOCS(Limited Surface Observation Climatic Summary). The SOCS(Like its Predecessors) is prepared by USAFETAC'S operating location a at Asheville, NC 28801-2723. Here, climatologists use state-of-the-art computer technology to summarize weather observations collected from selected military, civilian, and foreign reporting stations. Summaries are prepared from data that has been collected, quality-controlled, and stored in OL-A's wordwide surface weather observation database.
