AgWeatherNet Director Gerrit Hoogenboom recently visited the Washington State University Tri-Cities campus to share information about the university’s 160 automated weather stations across the state.
Not only was there a crowd of WSU viticulture and enology students, but 13-year-old Angelo Bravo came to learn more about being a meteorologist — a career he’s been interested in since age 3! His mother Sylvia said, “When other kids were watching cartoons, he was watching the weather channel.”
Thanks for visiting, Dr. Hoogenboom, and we look forward to your weather predictions, Angelo.
The AgWeatherNet team is located at the WSU Irrigated Agriculture Research and Extension Center in Prosser. However, AgWeatherNet is programmatically linked to the research, extension and instruction efforts conducted by the WSU College of Agriculture, Human and Natural Resource Sciences. The data gathered and presented by the AgWeatherNet has many applications that serve not only Washington agriculture, but research efforts as well.
