This dataset contains meteorological and light data from the weather station located on Saibai Island in the northern 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. \nData 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 \nNote that this station is located on land and has NO in-water sensors. \n \nData recorded: Barometric Pressure, Air Temperature, Humidity, Solar Radiation (PAR), Wind Direction True (vector averaged), Wind Speed True (30 min average). \n \nThe 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 \nThe 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
