Coastal Weather Research Center

The Coastal Weather Research Center, a self-supporting operation of the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of South Alabama. Located in an office complex in the 10,000 seat Mitchell Center on the main campus, the Weather Center consists of a meteorological laboratory, information center and archive. Among the Center's major activities are the dissemination of forecasts and warnings to local and regional business and industry and the support of Alabama's first and only undergraduate program in meteorology.

Why is there such an emphasis on weather in this area? For the meteorologist, the answer is easy. Weather along the Central Gulf Coast is interesting, exciting and challenging and, very importantly, it has a significant effect on the area's economy and life style. The Central Gulf Coast is a natural laboratory for weather research and education due to its rapid changes and impressive array of weather events such as severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, waterspouts and hurricanes.
