 Coordinated Universal Time - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
UTC is a hybrid time scale: the rate of UTC is based on atomic frequency standards but the epoch of UTC is synchronized to remain close to astronomical UT.
UTC is maintained within 0.9 s of UT1 (UT1 is one of three precise definitions of UT); leap seconds are added (or, theoretically, subtracted) at the end of any UTC month as necessary.
International standard UTC time can only be determined to the highest precision after the fact, as atomic time is determined by the reconciliation of the observed differences between an ensemble of atomic clocks maintained by a number of national time bureaus.

UTC is used in plane and ship navigation, where it also sometimes known as Zulu.
The UTC is based on an atomic clock to which adjustments of a second (called a leap second) are sometimes made to allow for variations in the solar cycle.
Coordinated Universal Time (abbreviated as UTC, and therefore often spelled out as Universal Time Coordinated and sometimes as Universal Coordinated Time) is the standard time common to every place in the world.

 UTC - Coordinated Universal Time
Since UTC is ahead of local time in the United States, sometimes weather data will have tomorrow's date, but it still represents today's data (we are not THAT good at forecasting the weather).
UTC is 8 hours ahead of Pacific Standard Time (e.g.
Weather observations and forecasts are usually reported in UTC, which used to be known as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), i.e.

The decision to introduce a leap second in UTC to meet this condition is the responsibility of IERS (Bulletin C).
UTC is the time scale that is used worlwide to coordinate technical and scientific activities.
It differs from TAI by an integer number of seconds, in such a way that UT1-UTC stays smaller than 0.9s in absolute value.

 Unicode Technical Committee
All UTC decisions are made in accordance with the TC Procedures, subject to additional limitations set forth in applicable Unicode Policies.

 Definition: coordinated universal time
For most practical purposes associated with the Radio Regulations, UTC is equivalent to mean solar time at the prime meridian (0° longitude), formerly expressed in GMT.
Historically, adjustments, when necessary, have usually consisted of adding an extra second to the UTC time scale in order to allow the rotation of the Earth to "catch up." Therefore, the last minute of the UTC time scale, on the day when an adjustment is made, will have 59 or 61 seconds.
Note 4: Adjustments to the atomic, i.e., UTC, time scale consist of an occasional addition or deletion of one full second, which is called a leap second.

 GMT Explained
UTC (or GMT) is now a standard used throughout the world.
Actually, GMT is measured from noon whereas UTC is measured from midnight.
The calculated number is the number of hours from UTC that your local clocks should display.

 U.S. Time Zones
For example, 10 March at 02:00 UTC is the same as 9 March at 21:00 EST.
Standard time within each time zone is an integral number of hours offset from a time scale called Universal Time, Coordinated (abbreviated UTC), maintained by a large number of very precise "atomic clocks" at laboratories around the world, including the U.S. Naval Observatory.
Thus, 11:00 UTC is the same as 5:00 CST.

 UTC GMT Conversion
UTC is used by international shortwave broadcasters in their broadcast and program schedules.
"1:00 a.m." in UTC is expressed as 0100, pronounced "zero one hundred." Fifteen minutes after 0100 is expressed as 0115; thirty-eight minutes after 0100 is 0138 (usually pronounced "zero one thirty-eight").
Today, UTC uses precise atomic clocks, shortwave time signals, and satellites to ensure that UTC remains a reliable, accurate standard for scientific and navigational purposes.

UTC members that need help with communication coordination during this time are urged to call Karnel Thomas, UTC's Vice President of Member Services, who is serving as our Katrina Response Coordinator until the crisis is past.

 BIPM - approximation to UTC
The UTC scale is adjusted by the insertion of leap seconds to ensure approximate agreement with the time derived from the rotation of the Earth.
Physical realizations of UTC – named UTC(k) – are maintained in national metrology institutes or observatories contributing with their clock data to the BIPM.
Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), maintained by the BIPM, is the time scale that forms the basis for the coordinated dissemination of standard frequencies and time signals.

 World Time Scales
A compromise time scale was eventually devised, and on January 1, 1972, the new Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) became effective internationally.
UTC runs at the rate of the atomic clocks, but when the difference between this atomic time and one based on the Earth approaches one second, a one second adjustment (a "leap second") is made in UTC.
The redefinition of the second in 1967 had provided an excellent reference for more accurate measurement of time intervals, but attempts to couple GMT (based on the Earth's motion) and this new definition proved to be highly unsatisfactory.

 NIST Time and Frequency FAQ
However, by international agreement, the term UTC is recommended for all general timekeeping applications, and use of the term GMT is discouraged.
GMT can be considered equivalent to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) when fractions of a second are not important.
NIST and the USNO maintain separate time scales, but UTC(NIST) and UTC(USNO) are kept in very close agreement, and can be considered equivalent for nearly all purposes.

 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC)
UTC uses 24-hour (military) time notation and is based on the local standard time on the 0° longitude meridian which runs through Greenwich, England.
Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), also referred to as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) or "Zulu", is an international time scale used in astronomical and aviation publications, weather products, and other documents.
Midnight in Greenwich corresponds to 00:00 UTC, noon corresponds to 12:00 UTC, and so on.

 NASA/MSFC/ESSD - Coordinated Universal Time
Zero (0) hours UTC is midnight in Greenwich England, which lies on the zero longitudinal meridian.
As an example, Huntsville Alabama is located at approximately 90 degrees west longitude, hence, local time lags UTC time by 6 hours (90/15, assuming Central Standard Time, 5 hours in Central Daylight Time).
Universal time is based on a 24 hour clock, therefore, afternoon hours such as 4 pm UTC are expressed as 16:00 UTC (sixteen hours, zero minutes).

 What Time Is It?
UTC, typically referred to as Greenwich Mean Time, or ZULU time, has as its origin Greenwich, England.
If you're going to be tracking satellites on a regular basis or over an extended period, you may want to locate a second clock, set to UTC, or ZULU time, in your classroom.
For similar reasons, NASA maintains all of its times in UTC, and all satellite tracking software requires the knowledge and use of UTC.
