Climate Change

Climate has been monitored at Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory through a network of climate and rain gauging stations since 1934. Climate parameters such as temperature, rainfall, wind speed and direction, humidity, solar radiation, air quality, and evaporation continue to be measured at different elevations and aspects across the Coweeta basin.

Much of this data can be accessed on our Tools and Data page.

Dr. Kim Novick discusses the use of flux towers to monitor climate change factors.
