Summary
Abstract: http://www.mesonet.org/

The Oklahoma Mesonetwork is a network of over 110 automated environmental monitoring stations operated jointly by Oklahoma State University and The University of Oklahoma. At least one site is located in each of Oklahoma's 77 counties. The average spacing between stations is approximately 32 km. The network collects data at 5-minute intervals with 5-minute resolution, ... View entire text

Quality The Mesonet's quality assurance system consists of 5 components: (1) Lab Calibration, (2) Automated Software, (3) Manual Inspection, (4) In-Field Comparisons, and (5) Routine Maintenance. During Lab Calibration, each sensor is tested or calibrated before deployment to a remote site. When a sensor reaches its rotation interval, it is returned from the field and re-calibrated. This provides an ... View entire text
