Fermilab’s meteorological (met) station first became operational in 1992. Located in an open field, the station is completely solar powered and consists of a 30-foot tower (as of September 2002) to which the following instruments are attached: temperature and relative humidity sensor, tipping-bucket rain gauge, wind vane, anemometer, and pyranometer.

Check, check
