The Dr. Ronald L. Elliott Mesonet Weather Site

Welcome to the Dr. Ronald L. Elliott Oklahoma Mesonet Weather Site. The site was established to demonstrate what a state-of-the-art weather data collection site looks like to folks, like yourself, who come to The Botanic Garden at OSU to be inspired and learn.

This site is named in honor of Dr. Ronald L. Elliott, who has been a key leader and one of the founders of the Oklahoma Mesonet. He has represented Oklahoma State University scientists as they worked with meteorologists and geographers from the University of Oklahoma to establish the Oklahoma Mesonet weather network. Dr. Elliott has served as faculty member and department head of OSU Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering, and he has been the OSU leader of the Oklahoma Mesonet Steering Committee for over thirty years.

The Oklahoma Mesonet has five-minute research-quality weather data going back to January 7, 1994 for all of the original sites. A number of these original sites were installed at Oklahoma Agricultural Experiment Station locations across the state.
