Use a weather/anemometer sensor to identify factors that affect measurements for reporting weather and climate information.
This activity leads students to 1) understand the distinction between microclimate and climate when collecting weather and climate information and 2) to identify factors that affect measurements for reporting weather and climate information. To do this, students:
- Determine the requirements of a weather station.
- Determine the requirements of the sites where weather stations are located.
Students gain experience conducting the following procedures:
- Making weather stations and determining sites for measurement.
- Collecting and analyzing data collected with a weather sensor.
- Analyzing data sets to understand factors that contribute to variations in data.
