MetadataShow full item record
The College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences of the University of Georgia has developed an automated weather station network that has grown from four stations in 1991 to more than 45 stations in 2001. The stations are strategically located across the state of Georgia; they mainly have been installed at agricultural and other representative sites. During the droughts of 1998, 1999, and 2000, the network was able to depict specific regions in the state that were exposed to extremely dry conditions. Weather, climate and related information are delivered via the Internet at ww.Georgiaweather.net in a near real-time mode.
