The Correlation of Mercury, Ions, and Weather Conditions at PA-47

Research conducted in the 1970s found that the emissions of SO2 and NOx proved to be a widespread problem through the formation of acid rain. In 2002, PA-47 was established to close an NTN/MDN measurement gap in south-central Pennsylvania, and sample collection conducted by Millersville University (MU) meteorology students has continued uninterrupted ever since.

Faculty and Undergraduate Research Collaboration

The research conducted for this project focused on undergraduate research opportunities. Topics included the general areas of study where research is prevalent; perceived advantages and disadvantages of conducting undergraduate research; and restraints that may make conducting research difficult.
