Brief description

This dataset contains meteorological and light data from the weather station located on Badu Island in the Central / Western part of the Torres Strait. The station was installed under funding from the Torres Strait Regional Authority (TSRA).\n These data are collected to support scientific research. \n Data are made available on request to other researchers and to the public. This weather station is funded by the Torres Strait Regional Authority (TSRA).\n The weather station is an AIMS Mk5 system consisting of a Vaisala WXT520 weather station and a LiCor 192 Light Sensor. \n \n Note that this station is located on land and has NO in-water sensors. \n \n Data recorded: Barometric Pressure, Air Temperature, Humidity, Solar Radiation (PAR), Wind Direction True (vector averaged), Wind Speed True (30 min average). \n \n The weather stations collect and store data in electronic memory every ten minutes, the station uses the 3G phone network to send the data to AIMS where it is stored in a database and then made available via the web and other systems. \n \n The data are then checked for accuracy using a number of range and historical checks, longer term summeries are then calculated along with indicies of potential thermal stress.\n
