Ridge - Detailed Overview

49°19'03.2"N, 114°25'49.8"W
2135m ASL

 

The ridge MET station sensors are mounted on a 30m communication tower (owned and maintained by Tough Country), located N-NE of North Peak (Gravenstafel Mnt). Adjacent to the tower, resides a small amateur radio communication shed (VE6PAS), operated by Dale Munroe, in which the datalogger, atmospheric pressure sensor, mains power supply and WAN access are housed. The station records incoming and outgoing shortwave solar radiation, net incoming/outgoing longwave radiation, wind speed (2165m ASL), temperature (3 m ASL), and relative humidity, all of which are fixed to the tower with the exception of the relative humidity sensor which is located above the shed. 20 m east of the shed is a Geonor triple sensor precipitation gauge, co-located with a wind speed anemometer to capture data at the Geonor orifice. A laptop running Logernet, rerieves the data from the logger every 15 mintes. A small script is then called by the scheduler in Loggernet, which first copies the MET data to an output folder, before logging into ftp.artemislab.ca, and pushing to /Secureftp/METData.
