The mission of the Regional Weather Information Center is to support the highest quality undergraduate and graduate education through experimental opportunities in operational and applied research in contemporary meteorology with an emphasis on future applications through technology transfer to enhance economic development.

The 2000 sq. ft. facility is located on the second floor of Odegard Hall. The facility contains a prototype information management center designed to support weather analysis and forecasting in a responsive decision support environment and support the research and operational activities of the Center. Additionally, unique support is derived from UNDs Doppler weather radar, a high-speed data link to the UNDs Cray supercomputer, and real-time access to a statewide network of automated weather observing stations. The center also houses a specially designed soundproof radio room and separate television studio. A state-of-the-art production set allows editing within the facility resulting in high-performance weather graphics producing three dimensional animations of broadcast weather information.
