Capricorn FLX Weather Station Benefits Multiple Departments at University

Funded by a NASA STEM grant, Vincennes University in Indiana purchased a Capricorn FLX™ Weather Station with the Weather MicroServer™ and Weather Master™ software. Assistant Professor of Geoscience Andrew Smith recently shared how the weather station has benefited multiple departments at the university:

“The weather station is mounted to the top of Updike Hall, which houses the School of Science, Engineering, and Mathematics. Data from the station is utilized by several departments and classes on campus. I use the data in my Intro to Weather and Climate and Earth Science courses. I have a series of data loggers nearby in some groundwater wells. I use the atmospheric pressure data from the weather station to calibrate my data loggers and correct the raw data. I know at least one agriculture class uses the data and surveying classes over in technology use the atmospheric pressure data so they have the most accurate information for surveying projects on campus.

Real-time weather data is displayed for students and faculty to observe inside the building.

“We also have a laptop with a second monitor in our display case on the second floor that shows real-time readings from the weather station. I see faculty and students stopping as they walk by to see the current conditions. Our station is also on Weather Underground - Vincennes Station (KINVINCE23).

“I would absolutely recommend this station. Installation was pretty straightforward and it has been reliable thus far. I appreciate the flexibility it offers in terms of data that can be displayed and downloaded. Columbia technical support was very prompt and helpful when I reached out with a question. Plus, it looks really cool on top of our building!”

Especially well-suited for installations requiring individual sensors for optimal sensor placement, the Capricorn FLX™ Weather Station has been utilized in many applications including construction, education, military aviation, and mass transit. Get more info at the links in the right-hand column.
