Detectors in the dirt

A humidity and temperature monitor developed for CMS finds a new home in Lebanon. People who tend crops in Lebanon and people who tend particle detectors on the border of France and Switzerland have a need in common: large-scale humidity and temperature monitoring. A scientist who noticed this connection is working with farmers to try to use a particle physics solution to solve an agricultural problem.
