A NOAA - UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA COOPERATIVE INSTITUTE
The Cooperative Institute for Severe and High-Impact Weather Research and Operations (CIWRO) is the largest research center at the University of Oklahoma, employing more than 215 researchers, support personnel and students. CIWRO was established in 2021, and extends cooperative programs between the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and OU that have existed continually since 1978. CIWRO connects the scientific and technical resources of OU and NOAA with the goal of improving the basic understanding of weather and transitioning that understanding to operations to produce better forecasts that save lives and property.
