Rotating Multi Cylinder

Today was a very interesting and exciting day on the summit. With the winds picking up to category 1 hurricane speeds and leading to extremely favorable conditions for rime ice, the Army Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) team (Kathy, Kerry and Sandra) worked around the clock to get as many measurements as possible. They were even kind enough to let me help on the project and teach me the mechanics of the Rotating Multi Cylinder. The Rotating Multi Cylinder project currently being conducted by the CRREL team will not only improve weather models, but also help in other engineering applications in the future. In the picture, you can see the Rotating Multi Cylinder set up on the tower, as well as me keeping warm in my Eastern Mountain Sports gear.
