The Weather Station at Oswego receives all the standard weather data including observations across North America, weather maps, model output, satellite images, radar images, as well as forecasts from the National Weather Service. Students access these data via over 30 computers available in the synoptic lab. Software to view these data includes the programs RAOB, GARP, IDV, NTRANS and Bufkit.
Research-grade weather observation equipment is available and constantly monitors changes in local weather. Click on the Dr. Chermack Lake Surface Weather Station to see the present weather on campus. In addition, the program owns portable rawinsonde (weather balloon equipment) and tethersonde facilities. Portable instruments are available for student projects.
Oswego's location, on the shores of Lake Ontario, provides excellent opportunities for study of many spectacular weather events including lake breezes, water spouts and lake-effect snow. From the Shineman Science Center, we have access to three weather decks, as well as a room on the fourth floor with an expansive view of the lake that allows us to see weather phenomena from far off. Oswego's snow is legendary.
Geology teaches labs in five rooms in the new Shineman Science Center. The structural geology lab houses petrographic and binocular microscopes, mineralogy and petrology specimens, and a variety of geophysical equipment (magnetometer, resistivity meter). There is also an all new microscopy lab with Zeiss Axio microsopes. Each microscope has a digital camera that allows students to photograph their sample and send the file directly to the instructor. The sedimentology laboratory contains a ro-tap and sieving equiment, as well as a variety of hydrological field gear. The paleontology laboratory houses specimen collections, maps, and microscopes. The geochemistry laboratory contains a Frantz magnetic separator, vented laminar flow bench, a pair of electronic microbalances, and geochemical sample preparation items (Teflonware, trace metal-clean acids, ion exchange columns). There is a computer lab running the latest versions of ArcGIS, RockWorks, GeoChemist Workbench, Canvas-GIS, and Surfer. Additional space houses rock preparation equipment, including diamond saws, rock splitter, jaw crusher, disk mill, ball mill, tumbler, lapidary tools. In storage we retain a large collection of field geology and camping gear, dedicated to the Geological Field Camp.
