all have a connection to our environment – where we live, where we work, where
we play - and it is changing. We watch shifting seasons and observe more
frequent storms. We see changes in water levels, notice variations in crop
cycles, spot wildlife habitat changes. Here
at the Mount Washington Observatory, our job is to record weather data every
hour – facilitating a data-driven approach to the science of a changing
environment. We are THE source for mountain weather and climate data as well as
the research to understand these changes.
We make sure that critical
data is available because we do the daily and hourly things that are vital to
good science. Having the technology to record weather observations 24/7,
publishing meaningful forecasts, installing instruments that enhance our data
set and having the human presence to observe and validate the accuracy of
weather recordings -- all are crucial to continuing our incredible climate
record. Our daily operation is science and an 87+ year ongoing

Please assist our data
collection and mountain weather science by supporting the critical everyday
activities that make mountain weather and climate research possible.
