Title: Sable Island Weather Station
Description:
Abstract:
The Sable Island Station is the only permanently staffed facility on the Island. For many decades it was referred to as "the weather station". Indeed, for many decades the operation's primary role on the island was the collection of "weather data". Climatological record-keeping on Sable Island began in 1871 with the establishment of the Meteorological Service of Canada, and has been continuous since 1891 - one of the longest continuous collections of weather data in the Maritimes. Waterbody or Watershed Names: Sable Island The primary responsibilities and activities of staff at the Sable Island Station include collection of surface weather and aerological observations. As the only continuous human presence on the island, the Station provides year-round stewardship, as well as infrastructure and expertise enabling a wide range of programs relevant to issues of sovereignty, safety, terrestrial, marine and atmospheric environment, and heritage. The Station has become both a base for national and international atmospheric and climatological research and monitoring, and an infrastructure for all other groups operating on the island. Some groups require more support than others, but generally the Station provides electricity; water treatment and supply; sewage treatment and disposal; storage, transport, and disposal of unburnable waste and recyclable materials.
