The group first received a cave tour given by Shannon Tromboli, Education Program Specialist at Mammoth Cave. The tour included cave history and an introduction to the various scientific studies that are being conducted in the cave which relate to water flow, air flow and other factors of the cave climate. Following the tour, they were given an in-depth look at the surface Air Quality Station, where Johnathan Jernigan, Physical Scientist in the National Park Service Air Resources Division and Cumberland Piedmont Network, discussed the various air quality and meteorology sensors and data and their significance.
