Data Access

The Geography Department operates weather stations on and off campus to collect a range of meteorological data for use by the BSU research community. For any data needs in the Bridgewater area following 4/30/2015, we recommend using BSU Research which is our most advanced weather station on the roof of the science building. We have 5 minute data available upon request.
