The atmospheric science program at the University of Kansas maintains for its teaching mission several laboratories and student work areas. Laboratories consist of a modern synoptic laboratory, and an introductory teaching laboratory. The synoptic laboratory receives all freely available data in the Unidata broadcast as well as NEXRAD data. This lab is instrumented with ten Linux based work stations, several PC’s running Windows, and two printers (one color ink jet and one b/w laser jet). Software includes LDM, NCAR Graphics, McIDAS, IDV, GEMPAK, and ArcGIS. The introductory teaching laboratory is equipped with PC’s and experimental apparatus for hands-on learning of meteorological concepts. The Atmospheric Science Program maintains close contact and has internship arrangements with the National Weather Service Forecast Offices in Topeka, KS, Wichita, KS, Dodge City, KS, Pleasant Hill, MO, the Aviation Weather Center in Kansas City, MO, several television stations in Lawrence, Topeka and Kansas City, and several companies in Kansas City. Research laboratory facilities and equipment include a mesoscale modeling facility with workstations and peripherals, portable weather stations, a tethered-balloon sounding system, and large aperture scintillometer. The Geography Department employs two full time systems administrators to maintain the computers and the network.
