Weather Stations

A weather station is a device that collects data related to the weather and environment using many different sensors. Weather stations are also called weather centers, personal weather stations, professional weather stations, home weather station, weather forecaster. Weather stations sensors may include a thermometer to take temperature readings, a barometer to measure the pressure in the atmosphere, as well as other sensors to measure rain, wind, humidity and more. Weather stations range from simple analog technology to digital technology (pictured below). Some even connect to your computer or the internet, so the data collected can be analyzed using weather station software.
Soil Moisture Station

Soil moisture is generally defined as the water contained in the unsaturated soil surface of the Earth, derived from rainfall, from snowmelt, or by capillary attraction from ground- water. Soil moisture content (SMC) is a significant component of climatological, hydro- logical, ecological systems and agriculture.
