Climate Reference Network Station at Wonder Lake
The National Park Service is considering a proposal by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to install a US Climate Reference Network station near the water treatment building west of the Wonder Lake Campground in Denali National Park and Preserve. The site is within an area excluded from wilderness designation and would not be visible from the campground.
The U.S. Climate Reference Network is a network of climate stations developed, deployed, managed, and maintained by NOAA in the United States for the express purpose of detecting the national signals of climate change. The station is needed in DENA both to locate a station in this part of Alaska and because a site within a national park has the least likelihood of anthropogenic landscape change.
