Weather stations are used to record large-scale dynamic processes within the atmosphere in addition to limited spatial climates such as those for woods or cities.
Wind direction and wind speed, especially in the horizontal direction, are fundamental to meteorological considerations and to environmental measurement engineering.
Rain gauges record the rain that has fallen over a specific period of time.
The temperature sensors introduced in this chapter are in no way purely meteorological temperature sensors.
Depending on their design, radiation sensors can record the radiant flux density of specific irradiance parts or of all irradiance.
Information about air constituents is vital for providing knowledgeable answers to current environmental research issues.
