Pyranometer

Today, I installed a new weather instrument, for 2017 and beyond, to my personal weather station (PWS). I installed a pyranometer to measure the solar radiation flux density (W/m**2). The data from the instrument will be sampled every 30 minutes, along with the other parameters that are already being logged.

I have been told that the State College region is cloudier than most. Now I can measure just how “gray” the environment is here.
