The Oregon Climate Service (OCS) is recognized by the American Association of State Climatologists as Oregon’s state climate office. Established in the 1970s, OCS is hosted by the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences at Oregon State University and the Oregon Climate Change Research Institute. The OCS connects users with past and near-future climate data, seasonal outlooks, and general knowledge about Oregon climate and weather. OCS staff frequently are featured in local media, give public presentations, and are active on social media. OCS is a partner with many state agencies and entities, including the state’s Water Availability Supply Committee and Drought Readiness Council.
