Oklahoma Mesonet Oral History Project

Oklahoma Mesonet
Oklahoma Mesonet

The Oklahoma Mesonet has become very important in Oklahoma for farmers, storm forecasters, emergency managers, and citizens of the state. The Mesonet officially "went live" in 1994 as a collaborative effort between Oklahoma State University and the University of Oklahoma. With at least one weather observation site in each of Oklahoma's seventy-seven counties, the interconnected system records such mesoscale events as thunderstorms and dry lines as well as precipitation measurements. This project aims to help document the history of the Mesonet through the stories of people involved in its development and use. We invite you to explore this web resource and to check back often as new interviews are added.
