Caption: The NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) weather station, seen here at the Shuttle Landing Facility's midfield on NASA's Kennedy Space centre in Florida, has a new neighbor. A climate-observing network that will drastically improve the nation's awareness of how weather impacts lives has been established at the site. NASA, NOAA and the U.S. Air Force will work together on the U.S. Climate Reference Network, which will examine climate trends and change throughout the nation and its surrounding regions for the next 50 years. Instruments that are being provided include a solar radiation measuring device and an infrared surface temperature instrument. This gives Kennedy a unique opportunity to compare its sensor system with the NOAA site that is approximately 100 feet away.
