Shaena Berlin for the Weather & Climate Club

On Friday, May 6th, the Weather and Climate Club sponored a trip for students to the Blue Hill Observatory, just south of Boston. The observatory boasts the oldest continuous weather record in North America, with many older instruments and recording methods still being used in order to maintain continuity for analysis. Once there, the group took an "Observatory Exploration" tour, where they learned much about long-term weather record-keeping and ongoing climate change observations. You can see more from their trip in the following slideshow.
