The Ferry Weather page is a cooperative effort involving the Washington State Ferries, the Washington State Department of Transportation, and the Atmospheric Sciences Department at the University of Washington. Support for this project, including the acquisition of weather sensors and communication equipment, came from the Road Weather Information System Project, which is funded by U.S. Department of Transportation and the State of Washington.
Installation of the weather sensors, including the design and implementation of the sensor communication software was performed by Meteor Communications Corporation (MCC). MCC is a wireless communications company with over 25 years of experience in the collection of meteorological data.
The Ferry Weather page was created by the UW Atmospheric Sciences Department. Please contact Rick Steed or Professor Cliff Mass, if you have any comments or suggestions.
