Membership: Science Society

In the summer of 2012, Mount Washington Observatory and Plymouth State University (PSU) embarked upon an exciting new research partnership to advance the Observatory's research mission and cultivate collaborative research with PSU faculty and students. The cornerstone of this partnership is a new PhD-level staff position, serving jointly as Director of Research at Mount Washington Observatory and Research Assistant Professor at PSU. Dr. Eric Kelsey has been hired to fill this role, and is working to expand research on the weather, climate, and ecology of the White Mountains and beyond.

Scientific research is core to the very identity of the Mount Washington Observatory and absolutely fundamental to this institution's long-term success. To ensure that this important new staff position is properly supported and that the Observatory's scientific efforts will continue long into the future, the Mount Washington Observatory Science Society has been established.

The Science Society, the highest level of Observatory membership, is designed for the most passionate Observatory supporters—people who are intrigued by the mountain's conditions and yearn to learn more about the world around them. Science Society members are proud of Mount Washington Observatory's scientific heritage and committed to positioning the organization for an even brighter future in research.

Benefits of Being a Member of the Science Society

  • In addition to the full slate of benefits associated with Observatory membership, Science Society members have unique access to the research being performed on Mount Washington.
