Brief DescriptionThis dataset consists of historical meteorological conditions at the Australian Astronomical Observatory, a division of the Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education.

Data from http://site.aao.gov.au/met/metdata.file is downloaded daily, merged into a weekly dataset file and uploaded every Monday.
Full DescriptionTwo 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.
