Georgia Automated Environmental Monitoring NetworkEntry ID: USDA0121
Abstract: The objective of this network is to collect reliable weather and
other environmental data for agriculture, environmental
research, and other related applications.
Collection Organization: University of Georgia - College of
Agricultural and Environmental Sciences
Collection Methodology: Each station measures air temperature,
relative humidity, rainfall, solar radiation, wind speed, wind
direction ... and soil temperature at 5, 10, 20 cm depths. The
sensors are scanned at one second intervals and data are
permanently stored as either 15 minute averages or totals. In
addition, daily summaries are calculated at the end of each day.
A micro-computer at the Georgia Experiment Station in Griffin
initiates telephone calls to each weather station at midnight
and downloads data collected the previous day. Tabular reports
generated daily; data graphically printed weekly.
Collection Frequency: Stored as 15 minute averages, totals, or
Update Characteristics: Current weather and environmental
The raw data for each site is about 1 megabyte per site/year.
