The Atmospheric Observatory has been a centre for atmospheric measurements and meteorological observations since 1970, continuing records which began originally at the University College of Reading in 1900.

It is situated on the Whiteknights campus (51.442N, 0.938W), near the Earley Gate entrance, at 66m above sea level.

As well as traditional meteorological observations, continuous measurements are also made automatically, some of which are available through web pages.
