How Are We Doing?
My name is Graham McClung and I live in Lismore, a small city in
New South Wales on the east coast of Australia, not far south
of the Queensland border.
By training I am a geologist. I'm not sure whether (no pun
intended) I became a geologist because of my love for the
outdoors, or whether that grew with the career.
Whatever the reason, weather is part of the outdoor experience,
and the more I saw of the changing sky and weather conditions,
the more I wanted to understand the causes, particularly of
the more spectacular events.
One way to improve weather understanding is by recording the
changes in the main components of the "feel" of the weather
-- temperature,humidity, wind and precipitation. This can be
done easily at home with some form of weather station.
Hence this website.
But even in the early days of building these pages, the concept
of the site is changing. It will probably continue to change as
I wander down the many paths which reveal themselves as I
follow up questions about weather.
And that is where you can help.
What would you like to see on these pages? Is there a
particular facet of the weather that you would like to know
Don't restrict yourself to questions or suggestions about the
capabilities or technology of home weather stations. Already I
can see this website covering a much wider field.
I would also appreciate any comments you may have about the
site, and please let me know of any errors you have noticed.
My aim is to make these pages as useful and interesting as
possible, and you will help me in these aims by contributing
your thoughts on the short form below.
