New Weather Stations on top of Mt. Everest
« on: July 01, 2019, 11:15:54 PM »
Looks like National Geographic (in partnership with Rolex) just installed some weather stations on top of Mount Everest

https://earther.gizmodo.com/scientists-just-installed-the-world-s-highest-weather-s-1835485734

From that article and the picture shown, RM Young was the brand weather station that they used to withstand those extreme conditions and provide data. Amazing!

One would have thought there would have been a little more thought, robustness and protection in the cabling?

Wow, very awesome find indeed! Thanks for sharing! And I noticed one of the scientific leads is from my home-state University of Maine! I'll be the first to admit you don't typically hear much about UMaine, so its pretty neat to see a name from near home.

Thanks again!
