THIS SITE HAS BEEN INSTALLED AND IS CURRENTLY LOGGING DATA!
This site, on a ridge above the campground in
Great Sand Dunes National Park,
is located on granite bedrock and has excellent skyview.
The site was installed by UNAVCO personnel on August 16-17 of 2006.
Many thanks to Park geologist Andrew Valdez, resource manager Fred Bunch
and biologist Phyllis Bovin for helping to facilitate this site!
Thanks also to Susanna Gross for data downloads and for fixing various
equipment problems that have arisen.
Data outages (see time series on our status page)
correspond to an antenna cable failure (9/18 to 11/20 '06) and a solar panel
mount destroyed by high winds (6/7 '07 to 1/8 '08).
