The Austin College Weather Station (ACWX), located on Austin College's Sneed Environmental Research Area approximately 10 miles west of Sherman, provides unique opportunities to study weather and climate in North Texas. Established in Spring 2001 by undergraduate physics students, the main objectives of the weather station are
- To provide reliable meteorological information for the Austin College and local communities,
- To furnish current and archival weather data for weather and climate courses, and
- To involve undergraduates in high quality scientific research.
Austin College Weather Station projects have been generously funded by the Austin College Faculty Startup Grant, Austin College Cullen Grants, and the Bryant-Taylor Science Equipment Fund.
