Central Appalachian Summit Mesonet

The Virginia Tech Department of Geography has begun the development of a regional mountaintop mesonet in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia and West Virginia, and the Apogee TS-100 aspirated radiation shield is being used to house temperature sensors for each installation. The mesonet will help fill observation gaps for the National Weather Service, and complement long-term vegetation research that is being conducted within the geography department in conjunction with federal (USFS, US Fish & Wildlife Service) and state (VA & WV state parks) agencies at each high elevation weather station site.
