The OSU Hydrophiles have partnered with the water faculty in the College of Forestry to establish the Oak Creek Collaborative Monitoring Project. The OSU Hydrophiles go each month to download data from and maintain two meteorological stations in the McDonald-Dunn Forest. This data is processed and stored as the foundations of a long-term monitoring data set that can be used for research and teaching. This is an opportunity for graduate students to gain invaluable experience maintaining a scientific monitoring network and working with field data equipment that is widely used in the water resources sciences. Mentoring is a strong component of this project and the Hydrophiles work closely with undergraduates and other students to help this network grow. If you are interested in participating in this project or have any questions, contact Caroline Nash
