ATMO Students Assembling Weather Instrumentation

During the spring of 2013, the ATMO students working on the green roof finally assembled the weather instrumentation on the roof! We were able to install all of the devices for measuring temperature, dewpoint, radiance, precipitation amounts, wind speed, and direction. All of this data will help with research in seeing what kind of weather is affecting the health of the plants on the roof. Temperature is also going to be read from underneath the plants to see how the vegetation effects the temperature of the roof for insulation purposes.
