The Office of the New Jersey State Climatologist (ONJSC) serves as the focal point for activities pertaining to the climate of the Garden State. Dr. David A. Robinson, New Jersey State Climatologist, directs the Office, which resides within the Center for Environmental Prediction in the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station at Cook College, Rutgers University. The ONJSC is responsible for collecting and archiving climate data, maintaining an active research program pertaining to New Jersey climate and, through various outreach programs, providing climate education and information to the citizens of New Jersey. ONJSC highlights include the NJ Weather and Climate Network, arguably the most spatially dense mesonet in the country, media interviews often exceeding 300 annually, research on topics ranging from urban climates to insect pest management to climate change, and contributions to university, state and national programs related to issues such as drought, emergency management and homeland security.
