Pamella Aishlin Cedillo-Setting up Weather Stations in Costa Rica

Pam Cedillo has been working with the TAHMO program (Trans African Hydro-Meteorological Observatory) to install school weather stations to gain needed climate data for regional climate models, advance climate education and associated STEM skill sets and serve as a resource for local climate impact needs. She just helped deliver two of these international school weather stations in Costa Rica–including site selection, installation, data use and maintenance.

These weather stations provide valuable data for communities. Their data has been a great resource for crop insurance in Africa, climate impact research in Costa Rica, and realtime weather data for dryland agriculture near Marsing, Idaho, to name a few.
