The state of Tennessee is unique in that it has three “grand divisions” based on the physical makeup of the state. In the interest of developing a compendium of climate information for the state that can be used as a viable reference for educators and researchers, the students enrolled in the Statistics in Climatology and Meteorology course decided to develop an atlas that categorizes and summarizes the climate statistics for the state. The project is in its infancy, and will be continued with the next class in our sequence – Applied Climatology. The work presented in this poster shows some of the progress to date, and describes the plans for finishing and delivering the climate atlas for the state. The climate atlas will also be made available on the Tennessee Climatological Service website maintained by Dr. Joanne Logan of the University of Tennessee Agriculture Institute.
