Wx Station

South Erin weather station (Location) went online in February 2005.

This station comprises of the Vantage Pro2 Envoy receiver, solar powered integrated sensor suite (ISS) @ 7′, which includes rain collector w/heater, temperature and humidity sensors and solar panel, anemometer @ 30′, solar radiation sensor @ 30′, and UV sensor @ 30′.  Temperature and humidity sensors are enclosed the ISS, 24-hour fan-aspirated radiation shield. Shield combines fan aspiration and passive shielding to minimize the effects of solar radiation.  Electronic components are housed in a weather-resistant shelter.

Davis Complete Wireless Soil Moisture/Temperature Station, Solar-powered station includes transmitter and battery inside weather-resistant shelter, 4 soil moisture sensors, 4 soil temperature probes, and 2 leaf wetness sensors.
