The meteorology program is housed in a new, state-of-the-art science building (above) beginning Fall 2013. We have three outdoor observation decks and one internal observation room with glass walls facing north and west over the lake. Weather observation equipment is available which constantly monitors changes in the weather both on campus and through a local meso-network. In addition, the meteorology program has a software program, GARP, that displays current weather, model forecasts, satellite and radar imagery, and a host of additional meteorological information.
The Weather Lab at Oswego receives all the standard weather data including observations across North America, model output, satellite and radar imagery, as well as forecasts from the National Weather Service. Students access these data via computers available in the synoptic lab and their own laptops via wireless internet. Software to view these data includes the programs GARP, IDV, NTRANS and Bufkit.
State-of-the-art weather observation equipment is available and constantly monitors changes in local weather. A 10-m tower is located 30 m from the Lake Ontario shoreline on the campus and measures temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, wind, visibility, precipitation type and amount. We also acquired mobile rawinsonde and tethersonde systems to measure the vertical profiles of temperature, humidity, and wind to research phenomena such as lake-effect snowstorms. A multitude of hand-held instruments are available for student projects.

Oswego's location, on the shore of Lake Ontario, provides excellent opportunities for study of many spectacular weather events including water spouts and lake-effect snow. From our roof, we have an excellent view from the west to the north over the lake and can see weather phenomena from far off. Oswego's snow is legendary, producing storm totals over 4 feet sometimes!
