The Center of Excellence iN weather & climate Analytics
Designated an NYSTAR Center of Excellence (COE) in 2015, UAlbany's Center of Excellence in Weather & Climate Analytics is the State’s entrepreneurial hub for a network of over 120 weather and climate faculty, researchers and research staff based at UAlbany. Together, these experts are deeply engaged in advancing innovative weather and climate research applications with a variety of New York based industries representing utilities, agriculture, renewable energy, emergency management, transportation, and Unmanned Aerial Systems, to name a few.
The New York State Mesonet (NYSM) Calibration Laboratory facilitates the calibration of surface and profiler sensing equipment. Over time, weather sensors can degrade and fail to measure accurately or precisely. Regular "calibration" of most sensors is needed in order to retain high-quality data collection. The NYSM Calibration Laboratory enables accurate, rapid testing and calibration of sensors without the need for outsourcing, thereby saving time and money.
