Surface In-Situ Networks
The Oklahoma City Micronet (OKCNET) is an operational network designed to improve atmospheric monitoring across the Oklahoma City metropolitan area and includes important partnerships between the Oklahoma Climatological Survey at the University of Oklahoma, the City of Oklahoma City, and the Oklahoma Mesonet (a joint project between the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University). The state-of-the-art-network includes 4 Oklahoma Mesonet (WWW.MESONET.ORG) sites and 36 sites mounted on traffic signals and was designed to provide critical weather information for the daily operations of the City of Oklahoma City, to spur new scientific research focused on urban meteorology, and to serve as a resource for the citizens of Oklahoma.
