Whiteface Mountain Summit Observatory routinely collects and analyzes cloud water samples during summertime, while the Marble Mountain Lodge site hosts NADP and CASTNet monitors. Based on hourly data, the summit of Whiteface Mountain experiences cloud 20-60% of the time during summer (June—September), making Whiteface Mountain an excellent location to investigate aqueous organic chemistry in warm, low-level clouds.
