Research Project: CLIMATE VARIABILITY AND CHANGE IN CENTRAL OKLAHOMA

Location: Agroclimate and Natural Resources Research

2010 Annual Report


1a. Objectives (from AD-416)
Collaborate with Oklahoma Mesonet on climate monitoring, research, and applications related to climate variability and change.


1b. Approach (from AD-416)
A site for weather and groundwater monitoring will be maintained at the Grazinglands Research Laboratory as part of the Oklahoma Mesonet. This site will support individual research applications related to microclimate. Meso-scale research and applications will draw from the state-wide network of monitoring sites to evaluate hydrologic and agricultural management options.


3. Progress Report
A new agreement was establish for ongoing climate monitoring by Oklahoma Mesonet staff at the El Reno site. Data are published in real-time on the Oklahoma Mesonet website. The ADODR monitored progress of the project through telephone conversations and emails.
