Automatic Weather Station - Invercauld

This Automatic Weather Station has been established on the Invercauld estate near Braemar. The station has been installed as part of the MOORCO project, where we are researching the effects of tree establishment on heather moorland across three locations in Scotland. These collected readings such as Air Temperature, Rainfall, Solar Radiation, Wind Speed and Wind Direction are used to provide accurate environment details specific to the site and allow us to help predict future effects of land use or climate change.

In addition to creating an essential dataset for research, the live feed (hourly) provides the facility of remote data collection from this distant site and a reference for the fieldworker planning schedules. This live feed of online weather information will also hopefully be of use for the determination of recent prevailing weather conditions.
