AAT Weather Data

Two single-board computers gather the data every 5 seconds from sensors mounted either in and around the dome, or from sensors mounted in a Stevenson Screen and tower located some 100 metres from the dome. These data are gathered and collated by a small computer located in the AAT control room and are plotted as 1 minute averages. The times are local and do not take account of daylight saving.
