Deploying Weather Stations: A Best Practices Guide

From the tropics to the poles, climate, agriculture and other researchers rely on unattended research-grade, data logging weather stations. For example, the US Department of Agriculture uses weather stations to study anything from molecular plant pathology to forest management. Non-government groups, such as universities, use weather stations to study a wide array of subjects including how glacial activity affects air temperature. Additionally, commercial companies depend on weather stations to conduct businesses.
 
Our best practices guide, Deploying Weather Stations, shares field-proven tips and techniques for installing research-grade weather stations in the field. A range of topics are discussed, including weather station site location, sensor placement, system configuration, and cable protection.
