USGS Seeks Help Monitoring Atmospheric Site at Bradford-Putnam Wetlands

Great opportunity for a retired person!

The U.S. Geological Survey is offering an opportunity for weekly operation of a National Atmospheric Deposition Program (NADP) site located near Bennington, VT, and known by NADP Site ID “VT01”.

The position involves visiting the VT01 site every Tuesday morning to collect the weekly composite sample of precipitation obtained by a mechanical collector and ensuring that the automated precipitation gage is operating properly. CLICK TO VIEW DETAILS

The whole process takes less than an hour each week every Tuesday, not including driving time to the site. Even if it does not rain or snow, the bucket needs to be changed out and the data downloaded every Tuesday. Therefore, a backup operator is required to cover for life events and vacations. The operator may identify a backup operator.
