The University of Tennessee Arboretum Society is sponsoring a presentation on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrationís weather station that is located at the UT Arboretum, 901 S. Illinois Avenue, Oak Ridge.

Leading the program will be Dr. Tilden Meyers, Deputy Director, Atmospheric Turbulence and Diffusion Division of NOAA. A scientist with NOAA for nearly 28 years, Dr. Tilden Meyers has worked on issues related to acid deposition, air quality and climate change. Much of his research is focused on land-atmosphere interactions, particularly the role of how various land surface types (grasslands, forests, crops) play in both the water and carbon cycles and how these are affected by significant climatic events such as droughts and extreme temperature events.

The climate monitoring station at the UT Arboretum in Oak Ridge, Tennessee was installed in the summer of 2007. Criteria for long term climate monitoring stations are critical for maintaining a climate record that minimizes biases in the temperature and precipitation records caused by local disturbances. Because of the need for climate data in our area, the Arboretum offered several excellent . . .
