Title: HOW TO MAKE YOUR WEATHER OBSERVATIONS AS GOOD AS THEY CAN BE - Free talk
Post by: MBweather on February 04, 2016, 09:57:41 PM
Hi, Like me I suspect a lot of weather enthusiasts out there, own and operate their own digital weather station. This is good fun and certainly helps us to understand our local weather. With wifi and the everywhere accessible internet, these home weather stations can link to many crowd weather sites such as the Scottish Weather Network, Wunderground and the Met Office WOW program. Calibrating, re calibrating, and checking the accuracy of home weather stations is often missed out of the instruction manuals.
For those interested in making your observations as good as they can be, you may be interested in a lecture entitled “HOW TO MAKE YOUR WEATHER OBSERVATIONS AS GOOD AS THEY CAN BE” to be given by Dr. Geoff Jenkins OBE from the Met Office and who writes regular articles in the Weather Magazine about weather instruments. The lecture is being organised jointly by The Royal Meteorological Society and the University of the Highlands and Islands at their new Inverness College Campus. It’s a free event and everybody is welcome. There will be live video conferencing links to Perth College, Stornoway College and Thurso College. (If there is demand for these locations only) The date is the 10th of February at 7.00pm with tea and coffee at 6.30pm Hope to see you there. Any more info required, please let me know.
