Nathanael Motz
Nathanael Motz
    Nathanael is a Carleton Alum from 1998. After graduating, he held a two-year internship with the Physics and Astronomy Department. Included in his many activities was working with Doug to determine the computer resources needed to support this project. Upon recommendation from Nathanael, it was decided to use Linux and other open source software to power the Carleton Weather Database website. He set up the Apache webserver and MySQL database which allowed students to begin work on this site.


Colin Nichols
Colin Nichols
    Colin is a physics major at Carleton College. Colin's contributions to the Carleton College Weather page include helping to setup some of the instrumentation and getting the data from the instruments into our database. He also helped to write the code for our daily updates of the daily database. He wrote the code for the yesterday info, the one year ago yesterday info, and the one hundred years ago yesterday info, all of which are present on the almanac page. If it involves moving weather data around, Colin has worked on it. Colin also wrote the setup page that explains our experimental setup and helped to enter historical data. He likes ice cream and running.

 
Todd Springer
Todd Springer
    Todd is also a physics major at Carleton College. Todd added fields to our daily and raw databases when we got our new humidity sensor and he also setup the database that holds all the historical weather information. Todd went through and sorted all the historical data we have, came up with a template for it in FileMaker Pro and helped to enter a good portion of the historical data. Todd figured out some of the formulas used in the old data and helped us to understand the data we had. Todd also went through the historical database checking for data entry errors and he wrote the page about the history of weather at Carleton College.

 
Per Hatlevik
Per Hatlevik
    Per is a physics major at Carleton College as well. Per worked on most of the php and html code that makes up weather.carleton.edu at some point or another. Per wrote the x-axis and modified the y-axis code for the graphs. He created the code for the trendline and he made multiple small fixes over the entire site. He wrote the almanac page, the graphing tutorial and this credits page. He also helped to enter historical data.
