High altitude observatories in the Drakensberg Escarpment


Sue van Rensburg of the Southern African Environmental Observatory Network (SAEON) says that two SAEON sites are now functional in the Drakensberg. The station in the Drakensberg sits at 3000m, which is currently the highest in SA. Their 3000m weather station made it into the SAEON highlights report and you can check the weather on line at http://gfw.dirisa.org/weather/vultures-retreat-weather-station
