Research Project: Temperature Inversion Tool and Data Web Interface

Location: Soil, Water & Air Resources Research

Project Number: 5030-11610-005-82-A
Project Type: Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 1, 2019
End Date: Aug 31, 2020

Objective:
To create and host a web site for temperature inversion tools and data from state automated weather networks (commonly called mesonets) across the Midwest. This web site create a common location to share information about temperature inversion information and monitoring and forecasting tools to be shared on the web site of the Midwest Regional Climate Center (MRCC).

Approach:
The Midwest Regional Climate Center at the Cooperator will build a web site based on their current architecture to share information about regional automated weather network data similar to what is being done with other regional mesonet data already in the Regional Mesonet Partnership. The web site will collect and share information and tools that monitor temperature inversion information and tools related to temperature inversion and pesticide drift issues. This will include collecting information from states in the region, including tools and data from state mesonets and compiling a common web site for sharing regional information.
