Our department houses the Ball State Weather Station, which consists of an on-site meteorological station and archive of local weather records from 1932 to the present. The station also houses the Meteorology and Climatology Laboratory.

The primary operations of the station include the collection of date through real-time weather observations, the compiling and summary of weather data, and the communication of severe weather information to broadcast media and general public. The station also allows you to develop short and long-term weather forecast.
