Bushland Meteorology Station Project

GW Scientific has established a meteorological station in the Old Prairie West section of Bushland, Texas. The station is located at a private residence of a GW Scientific employee. While providing near real-time weather information to interested parties, the primary purpose of the station is to provide opportunities for teaching and testing equipment and techniques useful in establishing data-collection stations for different purposes in climatologically diverse locations. Data from the station may be useful to residents of the area.

Station Information

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. Calculation is from the online NOAA Magnetic Field Calculator.
