About the Colorado Climate Center

Our Mission

The Colorado Climate Center is located at Colorado State University, in Fort Collins, Colorado, within the Department of Atmospheric Science. With the support of the Agricultural Experiment Station, it is the Center's privilege and duty to provide services and expertise related to Colorado's complex climate.

The Climate Center is a recognized State Climate Office by the American Association of State Climatologists (ARSCO designated). As a recognized State Climate Office, the Center strives to collect and observe data with the purpose of monitoring the climate, placing individual events into historical perspective, disseminating climate information to the user community, and providing climate expertise as part of the decision-making process. The Climate Center is dedicated to the development of tools and methods to better communicate the climatology and climate variability of Colorado to scientists, educators, stakeholders, media, and the general public. In an effort to better understand Colorado's climate, and how it is changing, the staff also regularly conducts (and collaborates on) research projects.
