Factual Reporting: VERY HIGH
Notes: The United States National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI), headquartered in Asheville, North Carolina, is the world’s largest active archive of environmental data. The establishment of NCEI was rooted in the dramatic increase in the demand for environmental data and information in the years preceding 2015.
In review, NCEI provided an incredible amount of pro-scientific information on climate, geophysical and oceanographic data. This is a pro-science source that is evidence-based and very high in factual reporting of information. (D. Van Zandt 2/27/2018)
