Weather Observatory Instruments installed on campus that includes:
1. Hemispherical Cup Anemometer
3. Rain Gauge
4. Stevenson Screen
5. Grass Meter
Hemispherical Cup Anemometer is used for measuring wind speed.
Evaporimeter is used for measuring the rate of evaporation from a wet surface to the atmosphere.
Rain Gauge is used by meteorologists to gather and measure the amount of liquid precipitation over a set period of time.
Stevenson Screen holds instruments that include thermometers (ordinary, maximum/minimum), a hygrometer, a psychro-meter, a dew-cell, a barometer and a thermograph. Its purpose is to provide a standardized environment in which to measure temperature, humidity, dew-point and atmospheric pressure.
Grass meter to measure the level of the grass/lawn.
Weather Vane is an instrument that shows the direction of the wind. They are typically used as an architectural ornament to the highest point of a building.
These devices will be used to observe and measure the weather on campus and its other characteristics such as wind speed, rate of evaporation from a wet surface to the atmosphere, the amount of liquid precipitation (over a set period of time) and precipitation and direct heat radiation from outside sources.
