    The looming 100-foot instrumentation tower nestled among the pines in the southwest corner of the Valles Caldera National Preserve may help scientists answer some of the most important questions of our age. Data from this tower will be used to foretell how climate change might affect Earth’s life processes. Predicting these impacts has been a vexing problem because there is no precedent for a warming Earth with extensive human habitation.
