A new online tracker that allows you to watch the start of spring is based on the work of a UWM climatologist.

Mark Schwartz developed the spring indices, which measure relationships between temperature and plant growth.

On UWM Today, he explains how the indices can be used in agriculture, wildfire prevention and gardening.​
