Research scientist and site manager Ian McCubbin and Daniel Obrist, an associate professor at the Desert Research Center, talk about how to set up equipment used to monitor mercury in the atmosphere at the Storm Peak Laboratory near the top of the Morningside lift at Steamboat Ski Area. The Storm Peak Laboratory is a research center that integrates research and education by advancing the discovery and understanding within the field of aerosol and cloud interactions. The permanent mountaintop facility, which was constructed during summer 1995 and has been in existence in various forms for more than 25 years, was remodeled during the past year, increasing its ability to study the Earth’s atmosphere.
