Journals - Mount Washington Observatory

Students in the Contemporary Issues through Videoconferencing class spoke with Weather Observer and Educational Specialist, Rebecca Scholand, about her work on the top of Mount Washington, New Hampshire, USA, aka "Home of the world's worst weather."

"The Observatory's mission is to maintain a 24 hour record of the weather conditions on the summit of Mount Washington, while taking advantage of its unique conditions to conduct important scientific research. In addition, the Observatory helps promote an awareness of mountain weather and the fragile mountain environment by providing a variety of educational programs and public services"  (http://www.mountwashington.org/about/faq.php).
