The Marygrove College weather station is now linked and reporting data to the Weather Underground Network, a nationwide network:

Data from the weather station are presently used by the students in Dr. Mary Lynam’s ENV 300 (Weather and Climate) as part of their learning experience.

In addition, student Lloyd Weishap will make a presentation titled “The Marygrove Weather Station Project: Using Technology to Teach Students” at the Sigma Zeta Conference in Cambelsville, KY, at the end of March.  Lloyd has been working with Dr. Lynam as a research assistant and has been instrumental in getting the station up and going.  The weather station was purchased through a generous gift from the Sr. Mary Cabrini Fund.
