Storm Peak Lab is operated by the Desert Research Institute (DRI) Division of Atmospheric Sciences (DAS). DRI is a branch of the University and Community College System of Nevada. DRI is committed to continuing research and education programs in the atmospheric sciences from Sorm Peak Labratory.
Storm Peak Laboratory (SPL), was constructed during the summer of 1995 at the top of Mt. Werner. Although SPL has been in existence in various forms for more than nineteen years, the new facility is the latest stage of an evolutionary process of providing a practical, easily accessible facility for researchers, teachers and students of all ages and abilities. A clear upwind fetch places the lab in an ideal location from which to conduct studies of the free troposphere.
