Nathan's interest is in providing statewide weather data that is useful to a wide audience and really benefits his native South Dakota. Whether in agriculture, emergency management, water management or just a citizen checking the weather, there isn't a South Dakotan whose life isn't touched by weather everyday. Once Mesonet data is collected and archived, it is put to work again by researchers at State and beyond to find solutions to benefit residents and industries of the state.

Applications of Research

-pesticide application
-soil climate
-weather-induced plant stress

Public Safety
-prevention of heat stress injury

Water Resources
