Mixed Surface Analysis image
The Mixed Surface Analysis map is a virtual comprehensive analysis of current conditions and fronts at ground level using radar and infrared satellite imagery. The Surface Analysis loop animation shows sequential maps at 3 hour intervals for the past 18 hours. A surface weather analysis is a special type of weather map providing a view of weather elements from ground-based weather stations over a geographical area. Weather maps are created by plotting or tracing weather information such as sea level pressure, temperature and cloud cover onto a geographical map to find features such as weather fronts.

The Ockanickon Scout Reservation's Science Center is supported by GE (formerly Betz and BetzDearborn, now GE Water and Process Technologies). The Weather Station supports and enhances Weather Merit Badge, one of the many science and technology merit badges offered through the Science Center's program.
