KSC Weather Data Archive
- Magazine Article
The Spaceport Weather Data Archive provides a fully searchable database of weather data gathered at Kennedy Space Center (KSC) and the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. Not only can the user easily retrieve data and download it, but the user can also view graphically the weather data on a map overlay. The data are updated every hour for certain instruments, and as frequently as every 5 minutes for others. Data is available 24/7 over a publicly accessible Web site. The data is used by researchers to validate launch commit constraint criteria, and to ensure safe operations at KSC. The site provides links to technical publications and other resources, and allows data to be downloaded for further investigation.
