Another parking lot being measured for climate change: Newport, TN
My surfacestations.org project has reached an important milestone.
With the submission of #222, Lexington, VA, submitted by John Goetz, we are now below the 1000 mark (out of 1221) stations left to survey. It was a 3 -way race to #222 between power surveyors John Goetz, Kristen Byrnes, and Don Kostuch.
Thanks to ALL of the wonderful volunteers for helping to reach this important benchmark! We currently stand at 231 surveyed stations and 990 left to go.
I still need help in the midwest and the south, particularly Kansas, Nebraska, Montana, the Dakotas, Oklahoma, Mississippi, and Alabama. If you live in the areas want to make a lasting contribution to science, please visit www.surfacestations.org and sign up as volunteer. Its easy to do, and it makes for a fun science learning experience.
To see more weather stations like this one, see my “How not to Measure Temperature” series on this blog. This is only a small sample of the 231 surveyed to date, but it will give you an idea of the problems that have been seen so far.
