The World Right Now

Here in Colorado, water is scarce. I’ve become very aware of the cycles of mountain snow-pack runoff which fills the local streams, seeing the floods in the spring and how many of them totally dry up by mid-summer. I think in these days of global warming, it behooves us to get more in tune with environmental cycles. Here’s a site that does that locally. The presentation is kind of primitive – those line graphs are right out of Lotus 1-2-3 or something – but it does the basic job of remote access to the sensors out in the watershed.

“BASIN is a local community service network offering public access to environmental information. BASIN’s initial focus is on water in Boulder County, CO: where it comes from, goes to and how we use it.”
