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.

Our field activities

DECEMBER

During the winter months we make fewer measurements but there are still weekly visits to sites to check equipment and take water samples.
