The Citizen Weather Observer Program (CWOP) is a private-public partnership with three main goals: 1) to collect weather data contributed by citizens; 2) to make these data available for weather services and homeland security; and 3) to provide feedback to the data contributors so that they have the tools to check and improve their data quality. Come see how anyone with a weather station can join CWOP and get their quality feedback information, how that feedback information can be used to improve the quality of your weather data, and see some of the equipment you can use to participate.
