Weather Station

In June 2006, a Campbell Scientific Weather Station was installed at Cantilever Point on the FHL campus by the Carrington lab. We added underwater sensors (-1.7 m below MLLW) in March 2010. Temperature loggers have also been deployed along a vertical transect (20ft to 80ft) by the Sebens lab since 2006. Each parameter monitored by the weather station is listed below with the corresponding unit of measurement and instrument.
Parameter Unit of Measurement Instrument
Rainfall mm Tipping Bucket Rain Gauge (Texas Electronics)
Total Radiation (solar + sky) W m-2 Net Radiometer (REBS)
Solar Radiation W m-2 Pyranometer (LI200X)
Solar Radiation PAR (μmol m-2 s-1) Quantum Sensor (LICOR)
Wind Speed m s-1 Wind Monitor: propeller & vane (R.M. Young Wind Monitors)
Wind Direction Degrees (relative to true N)
Relative Humidity % Air Temp and Humidity Probe (PRT and Vaisala HUMICAP 180)
Air Temperature oC
Wind Chill oC
Intertidal Temperature oC Thermocouple Wire
Seawater Temperature oC Thermistor (SeaBird Microcat)
Seawater Temperature at Depth (20ft to 80ft) oC Thermocouple (Onset Hobo Temp Loggers)
Seawater Salinity PSU Conductivity meter (SeaBird Microcat)
Seawater pH pH units Field-effect pH meter (Honeywell Durafet III)
Underwater Radiation PAR (μmol m-2 s-1) Integrating Sphere (LICOR)
