Summit Observatory 50th Anniversary!

The ASRC Whiteface Mountain field station is proud to mark the 50th anniversary of the opening of our summit observatory. Since the completion of the observatory in 1970, the Atmospheric Science Research Center has successfully managed and operated the observatory as a world class collaborative facility for probing and studying earth's complex atmosphere. For over 50 years, data collected at the Whiteface Mountain observatory has been critical in helping policy makers reach informed, scientifically based decisions from the composition of the ambient air, clouds and particulate matter of the Adirondack region.
