The Texas A&M University System assembled a strong team to lead and operate the Southern Regional Climate Center. The SRCC Director is Dr. John Nielsen-Gammon. He has served as a Professor in the Texas A&M Department of Atmospheric Sciences since 1991 and as the Texas State Climatologist since 2000. Supporting Dr. Nielsen-Gammon is a partnership including the Texas A&M University College of Geosciences, the Texas A&M Transportation Institute, and Trabus Technologies. This innovative teaming approach brings strong expertise in climatology, engineering research, and data science.
Until spring 2021, the Southern Regional Climate Center was housed at Louisiana State University, with Kevin Robbins as Director. Many of the products and services we now provide were pioneered and developed by LSU, and we are extremely grateful for their decades of valuable climate service to Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas.
