Weather station adventures

Yukon River headwaters

Fieldwork can be both fun and frustrating!

Our climate change researchers maintain weather stations that are sometimes damaged by snow, wind and wildlife. This data helps forecast streamflow in a changing climate and helps Yukon Energy Corporation plan and prepare for hydro-security.

See our researchers in action - maintaining weather stations at the scenic headwaters of the Yukon River. Thanks to our research assistant Stephanie Saal for taking time to create this video!
