Field Deployment

Properly situating a weather station in the field requires careful consideration for accurate data collection. When selecting a location, keep in mind a few important factors. Place the weather station away from obstacles like tall trees or buildings that can disrupt airflow and affect wind measurements. Avoid areas with artificial heat sources such as asphalt or concrete, as they can cause higher temperature readings. Also, make sure to position the station on stable ground to prevent measurement errors and ensure equipment stability. Mount the station at a suitable height, typically 1.5 to 2 meters above the ground, for reliable data.
