Available SOO STRC Mail Lists

Below is a summary of the various mailing lists that are available to the SOO/STRC community. Subscription to each of these lists is optional. You may subscribe or unsubscribe at any time. These mailing lists are intended to serve as a mechanism to exchange questions, answers, problems, ideas, recommendations, and strategies among a group of NWS employees with similar interests.

Normally, the same message should not be sent to more than one of the mailing lists described below. Occasionally, a message will apply to more than one list. However, since many users subscribe to multiple lists, cross posting the same message nearly always results in multiple copies of the message in many users mail boxes. This can be annoying, so only cross post when absolutely necessary.

For more information about the mailing lists, please read the guidance provided below.

Instructions for subscribing are located near at the bottom of this page.

All lists should be directed to "@comet.ucar.edu".
