    Description

    A pilot project to identify climate monitoring needs within Saguaro National Park began in fall 2003. Nine weather stations were deployed across the complex topography of the park to provide insight into the spatial and temporal patterns of climate within the park management unit. This project will provide a valuable baseline for park management and may highlight unique spatial and temporal patterns that deserve further investigation. Project findings will help dictate long-term climate monitoring strategies for the park and other park units.
