Climate Impact Meteorological Stations (CLIM-MET) Data from The Mojave National Preserve, California and Canyonlands National Park, Utah 1998-2016.

September 14, 2017

The CLIM-MET stations are meteorological/geological stations that are designed to function in remote areas for long periods of time without human intervention. These stations measure meteorological and wind-erosion parameters under varying climatic and land-use conditions to detect and describe ongoing landscape changes. Combined with historic and other data, CLIM-MET data can provide inputs into regional climatic models that describe how the Southwest will respond to future climatic conditions.
