The project purpose is to formulate scientifically sound recommendations for the development of a climate monitoring network for the upper elevations of Maunakea. Developing a network of stations would be a value resource in the protection of the cultural and natural resources of Maunakea and help improve local, regional, and global understanding of weather and climate conditions such as drought, storm forecasting, ecological influences of climate, public safety impacts, and scientific research. The network would engage existing and new scientific, land, and management partners in the operation, maintenance, and use of weather and climate data.
