Weather station

The Sierra College Natural History Museum’s weather station display not only gives current weather conditions and rain totals for this area, but also houses a radiometer, a Galileo’s thermometer, and a recording and mercurial barometer.

Included within the same display is a seismometer and a working Helicorder seismograph. Visitors may be lucky enough to witness the graph expression of an earthquake or perhaps the rattle of a thunder storm while viewing the display.

The weather station also provides internet access to the National Weather Service and the U.S.G.S.
