Climate and Energy Balance

To understand the local and regional hydrology of the Tropical Andes it is critical to understand the climate. Within my soil moisture/hydrology research I draw heavily on the network of weather stations that my advisor Dr. Bryan Mark (The Ohio State University) has established throughout the Cordillera Blanca. I have been involved in this maintenance and installation work as well as the establishing of temporary on glacier weather stations for research into the energy budget of Tropical Glaciers. I am familiar with the installation and maintenance of equipment from Onset and Campbell Scientific. A recent publication that explains our research groups energy balance research can be found here:
