K-12 Kids Study Mountain Weather at Swamp Angel Study Plot
CSAS News: Fall-Winter 2008
Students and teachers from the Ouray Middle School, Montrose High School, and Telluride High School visited the Swamp Angel Study Plot and Senator Beck Stream Gauge sites during the fall and winter of 2008 and then used near-real-time data from those sites as a vehicle for studying mountain weather, climate, and snow hydrology in their classrooms later that winter and spring. We thank Mountain Hardwear’s Gives Back Program for facilitating this program, and enabling the CSAS to offer those study site data to teachers anywhere, via the CSAS’s CURRENT CONDITIONS webpages.
Ouray 5th and 6th grade students troop into the Swamp Angel Study Plot on October 23rd to see,
first hand, a “real” weather station and the Senator Beck Stream Gauge, before snow arrived.
