The Weather Keeper Program is a collaboration between the Manitoba Métis Federation and the Centre for Earth Observation Science at the University of Manitoba, to support the collection of atmospheric data in the Manitoba Great Lakes region. This program is a co-developed, and jointly managed, monitoring network that will provide information on how the Manitoba Great Lakes respond to land-use changes and variability in weather. This program also gives insight into the local and regional effects of climate change.

Ongoing lake, river, and watershed sampling programs will be supplemented with new automated meteorological stations operated by Manitoba Métis citizens. Citizens maintain the weather stations and provide regular status reports about the sites. Online data dashboards show the current weather conditions and provide a place to download or map additional data using the online dashboards.

Programme

Le programme de surveillance des conditions météorologiques est une collaboration entre la Manitoba Métis Federation et le Centre for Earth Observation Science à l’Université du Manitoba, visant à soutenir la collecte de données atmosphérique dans la région des grands lacs du Manitoba. Le programme est constitué d’un réseau de surveillance élaboré et géré conjointement qui fournira de l’information sur la façon dont la région des grands lacs du Manitoba répond aux changements dans l’utilisation des sols et à la variabilité des conditions météorologiques. Le programme donnera aussi un aperçu des effets locaux et régionaux liés aux changements climatiques.

Aux programmes en cours d’échantillonnage des lacs, des rivières et des bassins hydrographiques s’ajouteront des stations météorologiques automatisées, exploitées par des citoyens métis du Manitoba. Les citoyens entretiennent les stations météorologiques et fournissent régulièrement des rapports d’état des sites. Les tableaux de bord de données en ligne montrent les conditions météorologiques actuelles et sont un endroit où il est possible de télécharger ou de cartographier des données additionnelles.

This project was undertaken in part with the financial support of the Government of Canada through the federal Department of Environment and Climate Change and additional financial support was provided by GeoConnections, a national collaborative initiative led by Natural Resources Canada. GeoConnections supports the integration and use of the Canadian Geospatial Data Infrastructure (CGDI), an on-line resource that improves the sharing, access and use of open geospatial information.
