HDSC is providing digital versions of relevant NOAA publications dating back to 1943. Please note that some of these documents are superseded by later publications.

Not all documents have been digitized yet, and the site will be updated periodically as they become ready. The scanned documents have undergone optical character recognition (OCR). Because of the condition of the hard copies, some older documents may have issues with OCR, so please contact us as necessary about those documents. In addition, some oversized maps were fragile and could not be scanned at this time.

The "Comments" column in the tables below provides information regarding the state of the document and resulting digital version (e.g., if specific pages have not been scanned or have OCR issues, or if the document was superseded).
