U.S. Geological Survey: Climate Monitoring Network - American Drylands
The CLIM-MET meteorological stations are implemented under the auspices of the U.S. Geological Survey, American Drylands Project, which seeks to understand how climate (such as temperature; precipitation; wind direction and strength) and human activities affect geologic processes (such as weathering; erosion; deposition) that modify the landscape. Primary network operations are managed by members of the U.S. Geological Survey, Geology and Environmental Change Science Center.
Real-Time provisional (unchecked) data is available for all sensors for a limited timeframe. Quality controlled, quarterly updated, complete data for the stations are available on the CLIM-MET website at http://esp.cr.usgs.gov/info/sw/clim-met/index.html.
