WeatherSTEM

"WeatherSTEM is a platform built by CEO Edward Mansouri ... [designed]to infuse K-12 STEM curriculum with live data ... [It] consumes live information to create and deliver interactive activities and assessments. The platform combines data from weather instruments, agricultural probes, Web cameras and other sensors to create immersive science education experiences and an introduction to "Big Data" and computer programming.

The UGA Tifton WeatherSTEM website provides real-time measurements and a daily time-lapse video to anyone with internet access at http://tift.weatherstem.com/ugatifton. Daily updates and videos are also available on the Facebook page as well as Twitter.


Weather Station

The Integrated Sensor Suite (ISS) measures wind speed and direction, rainfall (gauge and rate), temperature, wind chill, heat index, UV radiation, Solar radiation, humidity, dewpoint, and air pressure.

 

Separate sensors measure soil and leaf temperature and moisture, shade temperature and humidity, and pond temperature.

Moisture & Temperature             of Leaves and Soil                      at 6in, 1ft, 3ft, & 6ft

Water temperature at pond floor
