The International Station Meteorological Climate Summary (ISMCS) is a Compact Disc-Read Only Memory (CD-ROM) containing climatic records for 640 primary weather-observation sites and over 5800 secondary sites around the world. When used with a personal computer (PC) equipped with a CD-ROM drive, the ISMCS provides convenient access to the equivalent of 250 000 pages of climatic tables. The ISMCS was developed at the Federal Climate Complex in Asheville, North Carolina, as part of an ongoing effort to distribute the massive climatic database maintained there. Although the access software included on the ISMCS is written for a DOS PC, methods to access the ISMCS data files from UNIX computers are being developed.
