Seniors study Keene microclimates

Four Keene GORP seniors are studying the effects of landcover on temperature variations throughout the Keene valley, to understand impact of different surfaces on diurnal patterns.  Their work entails measuring weather conditions at several sites across the region.  In October, they installed a rooftop weather station on the Science Building, with the weather station interface prominently displayed on the second floor.  Wind speed, pressure, dew point and moisture conditions are collected on a real-time basis and used for anlysis.  Pictured here are (right to left): Zane Atwood, Jason LaPanne, Alex Sabido, and Nick Young.
