The Centre for GIS and Geomatics manage a live Automatic Weather Station (AWS) and publish observations to popular online weather sites.
The professional weather station (Davis Vantage Pro2+ ) is installed on the of the roof of the Geography Building (Elmwood Building), recording the following climatic observations:
- Atmospheric Pressure
- Air Temperature
- Relative Humidity
- Dew Point
- Precipitation (amount and intensity)
- Wind Speed (Current, Average, Max Gust)
- Wind Direction
- Solar Radiation (Watt m2)
- UV Index
All care is taken to insure the station is online and active, but on occasion the station may drop connection to the internet.
This weather station is intended for education, scientific research and community outreach, and is not affiliated with any national or international Meteorological Organisation.
Live and archive observations are available here to view and download (an external link - Weather Underground -WU)
We also manage two external weather stations using the same hardware for the Binevenagh and Coastal Lowlands Landscape Partnership:
