The Bridger Hydrometeorological Research Area, University of Montana, is located 20 miles north of Bozeman on Highway 293, on the east slope of the Bridger Mountain Range. There are now over 225 miles of insulated copper conductor in this area for collection and transmittal of field data. This outdoor laboratory overlaps the Bridger Bowl ski area. The cable complex fans out from the 'Bridger Data Center', a building located near the center of the complex at about 6,500 ft. elevation. It is accessible by car in any season of the year. The electronics equipment converts the incoming data from research sites into coded form for transmission to the campus. The remote control for the transmitter that transmits digital information to the University is also located in this building. Meters at this location give wind speed and direction at the ridge of the mountain range, half way up the slope, and at the data center. (WRSIC abstract)
