Research Project: Operation of the ARS Micronet to Provide a Long-Term, High Spatial Resolution Climate Record for Study of Hydrologic and Agricultural Systems

Location: Agroclimate and Hydraulics Research Unit

Project Number: 3070-13000-015-026-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 1, 2023
End Date: Jul 31, 2028

Support and analyze a long-term, high spatial resolution climate record that allows evaluation of hydrologic and agricultural systems at multiple spatial and temporal scales.

Operate and maintain 35 instrumented weather stations on the Little Washita River Experimental Watershed and the Fort Cobb Reservoir Experimental Watershed. Collect data, provide quality control/quality assurance of the data, maintain a data archive, and make data available to ARS. Collectively these stations comprise the ARS Micronet, which is operated as a part of the Oklahoma Mesonet.
