Two new instruments designed by the Observatory are measuring wind speeds on the world's highest weather stations, helping climate scientists better understand how trade winds interact with humidity, temperature, and sunlight on a high-altitude glacier that provides drinking water to over a billion people.
Drawing from Mount Washington Observatory's long-term data set, research by Georgia Murray and her colleagues shows Mount Washington's response to climate change is now "statistically significant."
