Thank You for your Support!
for your finacial commitment to research and education in support of the Mount Washington Observatory!
Our work here at Mount
Washington Observatory is anything but typical. Working in the most inhospitable
office on earth has its daily challenges, but hourly observations are only the
tip of the Rockpile. To truly understand the value of those hourly observations
and their use beyond forecasting, let me show you part of a typical day.
On a typical
day at MWO we are operating a remote summit weather station with instrument
testing happening on the tower, conducting educational weather and climate
programs that take the form of Distance Learning and Classroom Outreach
Programs, leading Weather Station Tours and “Live From the Rockpile” sessions
twice daily, and we are teaching and mentoring interns regarding sound research
methods coupled with practical application.
On a typical
day, we are handling requests from multiple media outlets because that crazy
weather pattern or Rime ice has spurred interest across the region and often
the country. Our staff are maintaining and operating not one, but two museums
dedicated to conveying the message and stories about who we are, what we do and
why it’s important. Our volunteers are cooking, cleaning and mailing.
is only a quick glimpse into what it takes to hold true to our mission to
advance understanding of the natural systems that create Earth’s weather and
climate. We do this through observation, education and research.
This is only
a quick glimpse into what it takes to hold true to our mission and we hope you
will continue to support our work. Your contributions continue to be vital to
our atypical day!
As 2018 comes to a close we have
compiled a series of videos to share with you that touch on the many facets of
the observatory. We hope you will follow our calendar year end campaign as we
roll out new content each week and ultimately continue to support science!
