FINCA ALZAMORA WEATHER DATA AVAILABLE ONLINE


Today a new weather station was installed in the Finca Alzamora, UPRM campus, Mayaguez Puerto Rico.  Data from the weather station are available from two websites:  WeatherLink  or WeatherUnderground.  The WeatherUnderground site allows you to download archived data in a coma delimited text format that can be imported into Excel.  Data being collected include:  air temperature, dew point temperature, RH, wind speed and direction, solar radiation, UV index, soil moisture tension and soil temperature.  A value of the reference evapotranspiration is available on the WeatherLink page.  We are still working out a few kinks, but should have it running smoothly within a few days.
