The Council sponsors two weather buoys in Prince William Sound. These two buoys, one near the Valdez Marine Terminal and the other near a sensitive bird habitat called the Valdez Duck Flats, have been collecting data for two years.
While it is still too early to confirm weather patterns, there is enough data available to start to analyze trends. These buoys are expected to collect weather data for at least five years. Dr. Rob Campbell analyzed the data for the Council and submitted this report.
This is the first of a series of analyses. Find more at: Analyzing weather data
