  • Researchers use weather stations to collect data that showed demonstrated that during the day un-insulated green roofs are better at reducing energy consumption than both cool roofs and insulated green roofs, while at night insulated cool roofs are best for reducing energy consumption.
    Application Story
  • As part of a landmark national weatherization study to gauge the success of a $5 billion federal assistance program that provided funds for energy efficiency in low-income houses, the Energy Center of Wisconsin used data loggers to gather current, temperature, state, and relative humidity data.
    Application Story
  • Energy efficiency interns as California State University Long Beach deployed light on/off data loggers in campus classrooms in order to identify faulty occupancy sensors and stop energy waste.
    Application Story
  • Rogers Surveying of Staten Island, New York, used affordable, easily-deployable water level loggers to conduct investigative vertical datum studies for the Army Corps of Engineers following the catastrophic Hurricane Katrina in August 2005.
    Application Story
  • Pacific Geodata, which provides GIS mapping and analysis services to vineyards, wineries, and other organizations throughout the country, uses temperature/relative humidity data loggers in microclimate studies designed to help understand the potential for frost.
    Application Story
  • As director of cluster engineering for Marriott's Southern California hotels, John Miller uses reliable, portable data loggers to measure a variety of parameters and ensure guest comfort.
    Application Story
  • In southwestern Montana, at one of the most heavily used recreation areas in the country, the Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center uses weather stations to collect data from remote mountainous areas to provide users with current avalanche, snowpack, and mountain weather information.
    Application Story
  • Accurate weather observations are essential for the safe management of both prescribed fires and naturally-ignited resource benefit fires. The crew at the Sequoia Wildland Fire Module uses research-grade weather stations to collect hourly measurements for timely data that help keep firefighters safe.
