Welcome to the NWS Albuquerque Cooperative Observer website!

These pages highlight the important contributions of our cooperative observers and to provide access to the COOP data, and other sources of weather and climate data.

Weather data comes from a wide variety of sources, including satellite, remote sensors, radars, automated observing stations, and volunteer cooperative observers. Each and every day, a wide spectrum of users access these weather data to solve problems and plan their lives. Whether it is a rancher in New Mexico, a climate scientist in Europe, or a weather enthusiast in New York, the weather data that our cooperative observers collect has a profound impact on society.

Our COOP pages were designed to help our customers access COOP and other sources of data, describe the uses of data, explain how to become an observer, and acknowledge our award winning COOP observers.
