Expo, Continued

2013-10-18 13:24:28.000 – Cyrena Briede,  Director of Summit Operations

Good Morning once again from Brussels! The last day of the Meteorological Technology Expo was just as exciting as the first two, and I have had the pleasure of meeting many new instrumentation manufacturers and companies from all over the world. I have also really enjoyed being able to reconnect with ones I have met or worked with in the past. It’s great how these expos and conferences can be like a reunion at times.

I also gave my presentation today, introducing the Mount Washington Observatory to people from all over the world. I talked about where the Observatory was located, summarized our meteorological annual averages and extremes, about our staff, interns, and volunteers and how our shifts work, past research and testing programs that we have been a part of, and details regarding our regional mesonet.

There is a lot of interest in our facility for testing of new instruments and technologies. After my presentation, I spoke with representatives from companies that make precipitation gauges, electronic snow depth measuring devices, and even an anemometer that they claim can withstand the worst weather in the world. We hope to put that to the test!

This conference was a great success for networking and spreading the word about who we are and what we do, and I feel very lucky to have participated in this event. Next, it’s the Annual Meteorological Society conference in Atlanta in February, where we have 4 different oral and poster presentations occurring about the observatory! I’m so proud of all of our staff members who had their papers selected for presentation.
