ENV 480 Field Trip to Whiteface Mountain

Students from "The Adirondack Environment" (ENV480) embarked on a field trip to Whiteface Mountain on October 1st, lead by Assistant Professor Justin Minder. 

While ascending the 4,867 ft peak, students observed variations in geology, vegetation, and atmospheric conditions. They also toured the New York State Mesonet station located near the mountain's base and the UAlbany Atmospheric Science Research Center summit observatory, learning about the crucial environmental measurements made by these facilities.
