A meteorology site was established on the roof of the CREATE centre in June 2005. The purpose of this site is to collect data for use in dispersion modelling and water resource management studies. The site measures relative humidity, rainfall, temperature and solar radiation. The site was selected because there are no objects which will shadow the solar radiation instrument. It is also easy to access the site as the Environmental Quality Team are located in the CREATE Centre. Due to the large size of the building it is not possible to include wind measurement here as turbulent effects invalidate the data.
