Abstract

Dedication Ceremonies at Colorado State University Dedication ceremonies for Colorado State University's new Atmospheric Science Research Center at Fort Collins were held on 27 June 1967. The $745,000, three-story center, called one of the most modern university facilities in the country devoted to atmospheric research, provides 30 000 sq ft (2787 m2) of space for laboratories, offices, and seminar rooms. The new facility provides needed space for existing research programs and graduate instruction and allows for expansion and initiation of studies in atmospheric electricity, satellite meteorology, atmospheric chemistry, atmospheric turbulence, and new sounding techniques. Currently the CSU Department of Atmospheric Science is engaged in nearly $1 million worth of research for sponsors such as NASA, ESSA, AEC, NSF, Bureau of Reclamation, and the U. S.
