Taking the Temps

Posted in Blog

On May 6th, Pam and her assistant completed one of the important tasks of the forests’ “annual round”. With the last of winter’s high water behind us, we placed the data loggers in forests’ creeks, ponds, and wetland. The cigar-like loggers will take hourly temperature readings until they are removed and the data are downloaded in late Fall. We do this work in partnership with the DEQ, and are pleased that they are already making use of Hyla Woods data. What are we learning? There is much to be learned from the multiple years of data, but we have yet to take time to begin analysis. Anyone interested in helping? Please let us know. It is important and interesting work.
