Office of the Delaware State Climatologist
The Office of the Delaware State Climatologist (ODSC) is the principal scientific extension service for weather and climate information for the State of Delaware. The Office resides within the Department of Geography and the College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment at the University of Delaware. Dr. Daniel J. Leathers serves as the Delaware State Climatologist.
The mission of the ODSC is to serve the State of Delaware through the collection, archiving and dissemination of weather and climate data, through ongoing research pertaining to the weather and climate of Delaware and the mid-Atlantic Region, and to K-16 education across the State. The ODSC makes Delaware specific weather and climate information accessible to the citizens of Delaware through its web page, media interviews, monthly publications and through other extension activities.
State Climate Offices are an integral component of the National Climate Service Partnership, which also includes NOAA's National Climatic Data Center and six Regional Climate Centers (RCCs). The Office of the Delaware State Climatologist is recognized by the the American Association of State Climatologists (AASC). State climate offices recognized by the AASC work closely with one another, and with the regional and national counterparts, to provide climate data and services at the local level.
