Weather Stations

The Weather Reach Water Management System relies on Campbell Scientific, Inc. (CSI) weather stations. These stations are used worldwide for meteorological and climatological monitoring and are known for precision measurement capability, rugged construction and reliability. Communication with these weather stations is typically via telephone modem or Internet. To accurately calculate evapotranspiration the weather station needs a standard sensor set that includes:
  • Pyranometer - Solar Radiation
  • Anemometer - Wind Speed
  • Rain Gauge
  • Air Temperature
  • Relative Humidity
  • Others if needed
To build a weather station network there are several weather station and communication options.
  • Purchase new weather stations
  • Access existing CSI Weather Stations
  • Access existing weather station networks
