Switchyard Project: New Sampling Record

On May 10, we celebrated the sampling of our 10th station yesterday. These are more stations than we were ever able to get water samples from. Because of the ongoing good weather, we will certainly get one more station today, and hopefully many more during the next couple of days.

So watch the posted video and celebrate with us. The video shows Susan, Bill and me sampling one of the cassettes with the water bottles attached to it over period of about 15 minutes.

Recent record-breaking heat waves have affected communities across the world. The Extreme Heat Workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners to advance the state of knowledge, identify community needs, and develop a framework for evaluating risks with a focus on climate justice.

Where did you sample – maybe a map would be a good visual aid?
