The Bushland meteorology station is solar-powered and uses equipment from Campbell Scientific (CS) to read a variety of sensors, store
and process data, and provide telemetry. Sensors are read with a Campbell Scientific CR1000X datalogger which also processes the data
which are then transmitted with a Campbell Scientific RF451 radio to a base station and relayed to a GW Scientific server where they are
stored and posted to this web site. Data are transmitted and posted to this web site every 15 minutes.
The station also includes a Campbell Scientific CCFC ruggedized outdoor observation and
surveillance field camera to collect time-lapse images for education and scientific applications. Images are collected at scheduled
times in true color format.
The station location is 35° 13' 8" N, 102° 4' 30" W, elevation of 3825 ft (1165.86 m) above mean sea level (ASL).
The magnetic declination (March 2022) is 5° 57' E ± 0° 22', changing by 0° 6' W per year.
