 3.2. Criteria for Locating Stations

To identify weather and climate stations for each park unit in the KLMN we selected only those stations located within 40 km of the KLMN park units. This buffer distance was selected in an attempt to include automated stations from major networks such as RAWS and SNOTEL, but also to keep the size of the stations lists to a reasonable number.

The station locator maps presented in Chapter 4 were designed to show clearly the spatial distributions of all major weather/climate station networks in KLMN. We recognize that other mapping formats may be more suitable for other specific needs.
