COOS BAY — The Southwestern Oregon Community College Physics Experimental Atmospheric Research student group will be conducting a high altitude balloon launch from Henry Hansen Square (the quad) on Southwestern's Coos campus Friday, Nov. 16.

The students will be collecting meteorological data and tracking the balloon as it ascends. The data will be used to help the students gain insight into the behavior of our atmosphere, and the effects of upper atmosphere temperature and humidity variations on our surface weather.
