Puerto Rico Trip

I will be going to Puerto Rico very soon! The National Weather Service in San Juan invited me to conduct a seminar/workshop to help the forecasters improve their forecasts, particularly in areas with complex terrain and unique microclimates.

I'll be setting up temperature sensors around the island, most likely in mountainous rainforest areas where forecasting is most difficult. Part of my teaching will include a forecasting lab where they'll forecast for these locations, and the data I collect will be used to verify their forecasts.

I'll post pictures here when I get back.
