Research Project: Climate Variability and Change in Central Oklahoma

Location: Agroclimate and Natural Resources Research

Project Number: 3070-11130-006-022-N
Project Type: Non-Funded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jul 1, 2020
End Date: Jun 30, 2025

Objective:
To quantify interactive effects of climate variability, and land management water availability and quality.

Approach:
The ARS and Cooperator are engaged in the measurement and analysis of weather, climate, and soil data. As part of the collaborative effort, the Cooperator will operate and maintain 35 instrumented weather stations on the Little Washita River and Fort Cobb Reservoir Experimental Watersheds (the ARS Micronet), provide quality control/quality assurance of the data, maintain a data archive, and distribute data to users. Long-term assessments of climate patterns and hydrologic responses will be communicated to a variety of end users through a Collaborator website.
