Meteorological sensors
10 Mar 2011



Standard meteorological measurements are made at Chilbolton in support of all experiments at the Observatory.


​Cabin base for meteorological measurements

Measurements are automatically recorded every 10 seconds from a range of different sensors, including temperature, relative humidity, pressure, wind speed and wind direction. The meteorological datasets are available at CEDA.

The instruments used are:
  • Vaisala HMP155A temperature and relative humidity sensor
  • Vaisala PTB110 air pressure sensor
  • Vector instruments A100H anemometer
  • Vector instruments W200 windvane
