Consisting of eight consortium members, the Center's participants seek to engage in research that provides solutions for climate-related transportation challenges that include extreme temperatures, droughts, freeze-thaw cycles, and flash floods.
The consortium members represent research universities in each state Region 6. State departments of transportation, private sector stakeholders and other partners have demonstrated expertise in addressing weather-related infrastructure issues. In addition, the SPTC enjoys access to unique resources such as the National Weather Center, NOAA’s National Severe Storms Laboratory, National Wind Institute and the Oklahoma Mesonet, West Texas Mesonet and Radar Innovations Laboratory.
The SPTC is uniquely qualified to respond to mounting challenges related to weather extremes, bringing together transportation and weather/climate researchers to create resilient, sustainable, and climate-adaptive infrastructure for the 21st Century and beyond
