What is a certain weather station? First of all, it is a some kind or facility, it can be either at the top of the land or on the sea. It has instruments or tools for measuring some atmospheric like conditions. These atmospheric conditions provide the kind of information for studying the weather and the kind of climate that is happening currently. The kind of measurements that are taken includes the precipitation amounts, it also includes the wind direction and wind speed, of course the humidity, the atmospheric pressure and the temperature. The thing that we call wind measurements, they are usually taken along some other obstacle as practical. The others like the temperature and the measuring humidity are usually is free against the undeviating solar radiations, or on what we call insulation.
What are the instruments that are being used in these what we cal weather station?
We have the ceilometer, tranmissometer, disdrometer, the present weather or precipitations identification sensors, the rain gauge, pyranometer, hygrometer, anemometer, barometer and especially the thermometer. But how do these kind of instruments work? Let us start with the thermometer. It is usually for measuring the surface temperature of the air and the sea. Next is the barometer. It is usually used for the atmospheric pressure measures. Third one is the hygrometer, it is usually used in humidity measurement. Next is the anemometer. It is used for the wind speed measurement. Pyranometer, the next one. It is for solar radiation measurement. Next is the rain gauge. The rain gauge is used for liquid precipitation measurement over some certain lapse of time. The fourth from the last, is the present weather or the precipitation identifications sensor that we call. It is simply for falling precipitation identifying. Third from the last is the disdrometer, used for drop sizes distribution measurement. Second to the last is the transmissometer, it is used for measuring the visibility. Lastly, is for cloud ceiling measurement, ceilometer is used for that.
There are many types of weather station. Personal weather station is one of them so let us see and know how does this personal weather station work. Its some set of certain instruments for measuring weather that is operated by either a simple individual, or a club, an association or maybe even a business. A personal weather station is becoming more and more advance and that it can give many of different sensor to know the weather conditions. The personal weather stations sometimes involve some digital console and it provides some printout of datas being gathered. Some kind of consoles can possibly channel into a personal desktop or device where the data could be shown, or stored, and even uploaded to the websites also datas distribution systems. Personal weather stations is possible to be managed solely also for owners to learn and also to enjoy this , but some users share their certain results to others. There is also the Home weather station. These what we call home weather station includes a small number of instruments or equipment. These are the hygrometers, the thermometers, the barographs and the barometers. Usually they are mounted on walls, they are also usually manufactured by certain manufacturers by the known ones which are the Stormoguide, the Sputnik, the Springfield, the Taylor and lastly the Airguide. There is also another kind, the dedicated ships or we can just call it weather ships. A certain weather ship is usually put on oceans for being a certain space for land and the what we call measurements for air meteorological for helping in using for forecasting weather . This what we call weather ship is also for helping the in the search and rescue operation that is happening and also to help transatlantic flight. And lastly there is also a synoptic weather station. This kind of station, which is the synoptic weather stations, these are instruments that collects meteorological information at certain synoptic times. These times are 00h00, 06h00, 12h00, 18h00 and at the intermediate synoptic hours wich are the 03h00, 09h00, 15h00, and lastly the 21h00. The most common tools that these use are the rain gauge, the hygrometer, the thermometer, the pressure sensor, the wind vane, and lastly the anemome
