Antarctic Meteorology Project
The National Science Foundation awarded Madison College a Major Research Instrumentation Grant to create and build the next generation automatic weather station (AWS) for extreme polar climates, particularly Antarctica.
The goal of this project is to develop, test, and deploy a new polar automatic climate and weather observing station for use in remote polar regions, particularly the Antarctic. With a more capable electronic core, the focus of the new system is to make meteorological observations with climate-level quality measurements. The new system will host a first-of-its-kind onboard calibration system for temperature observations.
