In 2005, we established a network of three weather stations that collect data continuously. Data are stored as 15-minute averages. Averages of each variable are uploaded by radio telemetry at one-hour intervals and stored on computers at Clay Hill. Our data files include 96 measurements/sensor every 24 hours; in a week we record 672 measurements/sensor; in a month we record over 20,000 measurements/sensor. These data are sufficient to allow you to examine details of a single day or trends that occur over a year or more.
Our main weather station is located near a constructed wetland which is surrounded by lawns and fields. The two woodland stations are located in clearly different forests. The first is in a sheltered ravine with mature trees, while the second is located in a section of woodland that was selectively cut for timber in the summer of 2004. The data from the forest stations are often markedly different from that collected at the main station. We use Onset Computer® sensors and equipment. Information about weather sensing is available at the Onset® web site. Information related to specific sensors we utilize is provided on a separate web page. If you have further questions contact us.
