The Surface and Tower Meteorological Instrumentation uses mainly conventional in situ sensors to measure wind speed, wind direction, air temperature, dew point and humidity mounted on a tower. It also obtains barometric pressure, visibility, and precipitation data from sensors at or near the base of the tower. In addition, a Chilled Mirror Hygrometer is used for comparison purposes.
