Welcome to the North Dakota State Climate Office
The North Dakota State Climate Office (NDSCO) is part of the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station, in the College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources of the North Dakota State University. As such, the State Climate Office is uniquely positioned to provide information needed for natural resources management and climate assessment to the College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources as well as to the University as a whole, and to the other public and private educational institutions, corporations and government agencies throughout North Dakota and elsewhere. The State Climate Office is in a position to provide linkages and to serve as liaison between the users of weather and climate information in the state of North Dakota and the national and regional climate centers such as National Climatic Data Center (NCDC), National Weather Service (NWS), and High Plains Regional Climate Center (HPRCC).
The mission of the North Dakota State Climate Office is to advance the use of climate information for the economic and environmental benefit of North Dakota and the public safety of its citizens, through climate monitoring, research, education, and extension and information services.
