Kessler Atmospheric and Ecological Field Station (KAEFS) is a 360 acre (146 ha) environmental research and education facility located approximately 28 km southwest of the University of Oklahoma campus in Norman. KAEFS is home to a number of long-term meteorological and biological experiments. We welcome researchers, teachers, students, organizations, and laboratory groups to visit and to use our facilities for study of the south central Great Plains environment!
The mission of the Kessler Atmospheric and Ecological Field Station (KAEFS) is to provide a venue for integrative and transdisciplinary investigations of atmospheric, ecological, and human interactions in the southern Great Plains rural landscape and to share the knowledge and information gained with the scientific community and the general public.
Our vision is for Kessler Atmospheric and Ecological Field Station (KAEFS) to be at the forefront of collaborative research and learning, serving as a national role model for transdisciplinary explorations involving natural sciences, engineering, social sciences, and the arts.
