Presentation Transcript
monitoring questions
Monitoring Questions
  • What are the seasonal and annual status and trends in climate conditions at existing monitoring stations in and nearby the MOJN parks?
  • How do localized and regional trends in the climate vary with other MOJN vital signs?
  • Do these changes in climate warrant specific research or management actions to monitor or predict their effects on natural resources and other vital signs.
measurable objectives
Measurable Objectives
  • Report on status and trends.
  • Determine historic and long-term weather patterns and trends in order to detect changes.
  • Coordinate micro-scale weather monitoring efforts (i.e., install and maintain weather stations and snow gauges)

Weather Stations: All except MANZ

    • In the procurement process
    • Original RFP – Campbell Scientific & other
    • Greg Kudray (PACN) is working to resolve before end of FY10
    • Data uploaded via satellite; transferred to WRCC
    • Wind speed & direction, air temperature, relative humidity, solar radiation
  • Snow gauges: GRBA & PARA (?)
    • In MOJN conference room
site selection
Site selection
