Georgia Murray, Staff Scientist, Appalachian Mountain Club
Long-term climate records in mountains are limited with the Mount Washington Observatory’s own dataset providing one of the most robust resources in the Northeast. An updated analysis of climate trends from the Mount Washington Summit and nearby Pinkham Notch has been published led by long-term partner organization the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC). Join AMC’s Staff Scientist Georgia Murray to review the most recent temperature and snow trends as well as other climate change indicators from the Northeast’s highest peak. The Community Snow Observations project, that engages winter hikers in snow depth monitoring, will also be presented as an approach to improving snowpack estimates in mountain environments.
