about The cary Institute of ecosystem studies Environmental Monitoring Program

Our program is designed to understand how the environment changes over time. Long-term monitoring lets us evaluate legislation aimed at controlling pollution and climate change. We monitor temperature and precipitation, as well as variables related to air pollution, such as acid rain, air quality, and streamwater chemistry. We also measure solar radiation (including UV).
