Two scientists working with a meteorological tower in a field

 Image Number D4218-1

HRSL physical scientist Joseph Alfieri adjusts the wind sensor on a meteorological tower located in the Choptank watershed while HRSL soil scientist Ali Sadeghi monitors the data logger on the ground. The data collected by the tower is critical to understanding the transport and fate of water, particulates, and agrochemicals within the larger Chesapeake Bay watershed. The data is also used to evaluate and improve water quality and remote sensing-based models.
