The National Weather Service Wants You

Help map out long-term climate changes

Calling all wanna-be weathermen: You can help measure long-term climate changes with 11,000 wanna-be weathermen across the country.
    The National Weather Service is looking for volunteers in Calvert County’s Dunkirk area to take daily maximum and minimum temperatures and measure rain and snowfall. The Service will train and equip you.
    The Service has collected 120 years of data to help understand floods, droughts, heat and cold waves. The data you collect add to that knowledge, helping evaluate the human impact on climate at the local scale.
    Interested? Call or email the Calvert County Department of Emergency Management to find out how to volunteer: 410-535-1600 x2638; gottkr@co.cal.md.us.
