Phenology

The rhythmic biological events are they relate to climate.

Heidi Holtan

We connect you to northern Minnesota at Northern Community Radio and Tuesdays are extra special as we go deep into phenology territory to give you a comprehensive picture of the biological events happening in nature as they relate to climate.  It's our day to really focus on what's going on in terms of climate and nature.   We heard incredible reporting from students this week and we are really hoping they continue to call in their reports even if school is cancelled!

Taking time to contemplate what is happening in nature is one of the many aspects of Northern Community Radio that sets us apart from any other radio station.  Each day we bring you a phenology note when our resident phenologist John Latimer shares a note from his more than 35 years of personal journals documenting climate and nature data collection.  Each Tuesday he digs even deeper with the weekly Phenology Report. 

 

This week, John reports on bird songs, the sun's placement in the sky, trumpeter swans, tapping trees, the progression of buds on trees and much more!
