The McMaster Centre Climate Centre operates a network of five weather stations to support teaching, research and community outreach activities. The stations are located on the McMaster campus and at local high schools in Hamilton, Ontario. An interactive website provides real-time information and access to archived data from the McMaster station. The centre makes the data available to researchers, teachers, and students to support experiential learning, classroom instruction, exercises, assignments, and lab projects.
