The Oklahoma Mesonet (Agweather) is a world-class network of environmental monitoring stations. The network was designed and implemented by scientists at the University of Oklahoma and at Oklahoma State University.
The Oklahoma Mesonet consists of 120 automated stations covering Oklahoma. There is at least one Mesonet station in each of Oklahoma's 77 counties.
At each site, the environment is measured by a set of instruments located on or near a 10-meter-tall tower. The measurements are packaged into "observations" every 5 minutes, then the observations are transmitted to a central facility every 5 minutes, 24 hours per day year-round.
