Site types that use this protocol

Terrestrial

All our terrestrial sites collect meteorological (weather) data using automatic weather stations (AWSs). These allow meteorological data to be collected at frequent intervals over long time periods, and are particularly suited to sites that are geographically remote, making manual meteorological recording unfeasible.

May

Our field activities

MAY

During May we continue with most of the ECN measurements, and as the weather warms up, we start preparing for the additional measurements to be made over the summer.
